Ta-ke Rain Chain
Traditionally in Japan, many daily necessities have been made from bamboo and have supported livelihoods for centuries. Downspouts are one of them, with a history of using bamboo as a rain gutter. These Rain chains are made in the shape of bamboos, which is very familiar to the Japanese.
Based on the motif of bamboo, which is the earliest form of rain downspouts, we have created this product so that bamboo can be used in modern architecture. The bulge in the center is shaped to resemble a bamboo joint, and is a product that maximizes our elite pressing technology.
