About Raku

Prosperity, enjoyment and happiness: this is Raku.

The first authentic igusa (rush) area rug retailer/distributor in North America, Raku Living Inc. was started in January 2007. As more people become aware of the issues in the environment, there is a growing awareness that the world needs more than just home furnishings and design—it needs indoor places that incorporate health, beauty and nature into the existing living space. Our products are designed to fill this gap.

Each item is crafted with care and precision, making Raku rugs one of the highest calibre home furnishing around.

Every thread of the natural fiber igusa material (rush) used in our product has been handpicked in the fields of Kyushu, Japan and woven together using a blend of modern and ancient techniques to bring forth a new generation of home furnishing and design.

Raku Living Inc. has been featured in Canadian Interior Magazine, Allergic Living Magazine, Nikka Times, Amazing Canadian Fashion, SNAP, Toronto Life, and Apartment Therapy Ohdeedoh. We have also shared our products at the Interior Design Show, Green Mom Spring Market, Ottawa Go Green Expo, Green Wellness Expo, Home Metro Show, Toronto’s Green Living Show and the Chicago Green Festival, among others.

Raku continue make its way into the United States and other provinces in Canada, sharing our experience and benefit with our customers and retailers.

We are pleased to announce our continued transition into the wholesale market. As of December, 2010, Raku Living will be dedicated towards wholesale only. We will be distributing our product via local retail stores, trade shows and our online store, so look out for our products.

For our dedicated/supportive local clients in Toronto and surrounding area, we continue to offer our in-home service: consultation, purchase and free delivery.
