acoya project

Collaborating with the best creative talents, 'Acoya' project pursues unique approaches in various fields with art and design to draw out the secret stories buried inside these forgotten treasures thereby creating new sources of value and new markets for them.
At the same time, these creations also explore relationships between the sea, the forest, and nature, thereby seeking to revive the beatify of the waters in and around Nagasaki's Ōmura Bay, which is also known as the "Koto Sea," after the traditional Japanese stringed instrument. They aspire to the protection of the natural environment, and a symbiosis between nature, humans, and the economy. "Acoya" . . . committed to pearls based on a philosophy of symbiosis between nature + history/tradition + culture + the economy, now and 100 years into the future.
