About Us


To be human is to be uniquely creative. We have a drive to create—new ideas, stories, products, art, and more. While technology will change the way we live, only we as humans have the particular ability to imagine and unlock possibility. At Sakura of America, we foster this incomparable human capability to think, dream, experiment, and connect.

We know everyone is capable of creativity. This trait is within everyone, not just select people. Whether you are using our products for artwork, expression, problem solving, storytelling, or organization, creativity is at the core—allowing us to connect with ourselves and with others. We believe if you foster your creative abilities, you can reach your full potential.

We encourage people to take a moment to explore how creativity unlocks new perspectives, self discovery, and human connection.

Sakura – A world of possibility powered by human creativity.
