The technology of "molded plywood" was developed during the Second World War due to the limited supply of wood and other natural resources. In 1948, Isamu Saito established Saito Woodworking shop in the town of Kawane in the Shizuoka prefecture, and started production of joinery woodworking products, made-to-order furniture, and baseball bats.
In 1957, Saito Wood relocated its factory to Shizuoka City and started manufacturing various interior household goods with curves that are striking and beautiful, and are of the sort that is not possible when working with solid wood.
