Kirei is the Japanese character signifying “beautiful” or “clean”. We have chosen Kirei as the name for our company to reflect our dedication to the principles of elegant, sustainable design. By the way, it’s pronounced “Key’-ray.”
Since 2002 Kirei has been dedicated to providing beautiful, sustainable, functional design materials to help innovative interior designers and architects design elegant, creative, productive interior spaces.
Design Beauty + Triple Bottom Line
Our goal is continual introduction of new materials for you to design with, while improving our production and business practices to be as low-impact and sustainable as possible. We regard the “Triple Bottom Line” of “People, Planet, Profit” to be the guiding principle of our company. We aim to bring new economic activity to our source regions by providing new jobs at fair market wages in a safe, healthy workplace while lessening human impact on the environment.
Do Well by Doing Good
These principles, we believe, will result in a profitable company that “does well by doing good.” We practice continuous improvement of our business practices to lower our carbon footprint and waste generated, while valuing team input from all of our members.
