The Kenkawai founders

The love for authentic, handcrafted products

KENKAWAI is a Japanese name and an homage to Daniel`s grandfather Kazuo Kawai, who had run a lead typesetting workshop at his home in Kobe, Japan and manufactured his print products to the last by hand.

The literal translation of KENKAWAI is ‚health‘ and ‚river outfall‘.
