In a world where everything is consumed and disposed, Craft Design Technology strongly believes that there are things that should be passed on through generations. CDT is committed to deliver products and experiences that bring heritage to the modern life of people all over the world. Together with all of their users, they now begin a journey to create values that will last for many generations to come. Below are three principles by which the company designs its products, with further information and purchasing options available here.
Code 01 : Color
The Japanese traditional colors are applied to the items of CDT. We select color, considering the character of the product. For example, the color of burgeon, light green, which is classic, gentle to eyes and gives the sense of breath of life, is applied to the products which will be used for long time such as pencils.
Code 02 : Pattern
CDT has its distinctive graphic pattern which is unique and inspired from the beauty of the pattern originated from the Sanada-himo. Sanada-himo is the Japanese traditional braid cord used on the Samurai sword and also used as Obidome (which is to fix OBI) for KIMONO, and now used to bind the boxes of paulownia which contains the tea utensils and so on. CDT products use this pattern on the secret file folders.
Code 03 : Angle
One of the most important factors for the product design of CDT is the setting of angle. In nature, the golden ration ensures the fine balance and stability, and the silver ratio the most beautiful in the artifact. The angle of handles of our scissors is designed based on the logo of “CDT” and the ergonomics, and both the left and right-handed can use.
