Mashroba is a design house creating cute Buddha-themed products.
Buddhism reached Japan in the mid-6th century. When Emperor Kinmei saw a Buddhist statue for the first time, he was impressed by its beauty and proclaimed it a “handsome face with dignity.”
Since then, Buddist statues have been enchanting people everywhere - including the Mashroba designer.
Our goal is to promote playful Buddhist symbolism around the world using vivid and powerful colors, providing fun and comfort to those everywhere.
