The one of these big trees is cedar tree which is living while 400 years. This cedar tree did not lay down by even the power of Tsunami at 3.11.2011. Minamisanriku people have been trying to preserve this tree as the symbol of life until now. However, it has been unfortunately decided that three quarter of this cedar tree will be cut this April.

"LOOM BAG" Launching exhibition was held at a very reputed and fashionable select shop called SUN MOTOYAMA in GINZA,TOKYO.

LOOM BAG is named after "Love Of Our Motherland". The LOOM Bags are made for the purpose of creating jobs in Minami Sanriku-cho where Tsunami hit dramatically on March 11th, 2011 just after the Great East Japan earthquake. LOOM BAG is made by leather and crafted and woven by the ladies of Minami Sanriku-cho town. The collection is built on designs and colors with special meanings and emotion. The theme of LOOM BAG is "wish upon a star" On 11th March,after Tsunami, snow started to fall but when snow stopped there were bright stars in the sky. Many victims wished upon the stars with hope to meet their loved ones again. The stars were the only light when town was covered by complete darkness.
