Friday and River

Founded in 2011 by husband and wife team Joe Freitag & Yumi Kawamura, the name Friday & River is drawn from their names - “Friday” in German and “River Village” in Japanese. Based in San Diego, California, the company fuses traditional western durability with the minimal design ethos of Japan. They make well-designed, thoughtful, high-quality goods with the best materials. Built to last for generations, each piece follows the tradition of craftsmanship of both western and Japanese cultures.
