Who we are

“ I make the pens an I love it. It took me more than three nad half years to finish the design and other stuff to the actual point and also to transform from psychology graduated office guy to a craftsman. Looking back I still can not stop wondering how both Kayu and myself evolve hand in hand. Pens are my current life and it’s beautiful.“

„My main job is the visual part of Kayu website and all of the packaging, prints, cases and other invisible stuff around. Apart from Kayu I enjoy being a masseuse and also manufacturing varions different things that interest me at the moment. In the future I hope I will find some time for projects like diaries, earrings or shoes. „
