OFF Project: Submit YOUR uchiwa design to cool Japan!


Uchiwa Top | See All | Submit your Uchiwa Design | How to Use? | What’s “OFF Project”?

Support power saving this summer with your design

As we approach summer, it is necessary to be creative in cooling ourselves off while saving power.

While thinking about ways to cool off without using energy, loftwork focused the Japanese fan known as ‘uchiwa.’

This tool has been used by Japanese people from centuries ago as a way to beat the heat, and if it can be fun to use, it should help to survive the upcoming power saving summer!

Therefore, as the second installment of the “OFF Project”, which invites creativity in power saving efforts, we are taking submissions for original uchiwa designs from all of you, the creators!

Details for this project:

・Submissions should be a cool uchiwa or uchiwa with a fun design so that everyone will want to use it.

・All designs will be posted as free downloadable content.

・Particularly popular designs will actually be made into uchiwas by loftwork, and the submitter will be sent 20 fans as a gift.

・We will approach the media, companies, and celebrities who share the same view of “OFF Project” to promote these works of art and project efforts.

Through this project, we would like to portray the message of “Having fun while saving power throughout the hot summer!” all across Japan!

Deadline: By 5 P.M., July 7 (Thu.)
