New Design Detail
big-picture-view
Striving to represent the beauty to be found in form, and still express our resort concept - K.K.capri has been a year in development, from the initial idea to the final design.
It is the biggest change so far in the Tropication series of sanshin, with the main differences in the neck(sou) and body(dou), The neck is made from solid ironwood using the slimmer kuba nu funi design. The artificial skin of the body(dou) is now reinforced with a layer of Reatec printed sheet.
Although the artificial skin fabric we use produces a fantastic tone, it's texture has drawbacks in being able to express certain designs. Through trial and error, we finally found Reatec - a fireproof, waterproof printed sheet, yet with the look and feel of wood.

A strong form of Japanese paper(washi) is woven together and carefully dyed with a technique called serubiki. The result is reminiscent of an island resort.
