“When I was young, I was able to visit a beautiful Asian country, Japan. I won’t forget the trucker hat I got from our vacation which says “MAKE LOVE, NOT WAR.” Coincidentally, the hat’s main color is hot red, with LOVE in white and WAR in black. I loved that hat, but I lost it after a few years and I couldn’t find that very same design again. But that’s okay, life moves forward. Still, that statement will resonate with me until the day I die. In this world of uncertainty, it is better to promote love and kindness.”
– Jaekeyed, designer
Inspired by this childhood memento and the board game Gomoku, Jaekeyed has partnered with Wuque Studio to create Aka Haiiro (lit. “red grey”), an all-side dye-sub PBT set with unique legends and broad compatibility – supporting ISO, Alice, 40s, 60s, full-size, and everything in between!
Aka Haiiro has a single deskmat available for purchase, titled “Breathe”. This mat features an attractive grid pattern broken up by gaps that outline the corners and centre of a 9×9 Go board, making it fully functional for playing up to four games of Go or Gomoku at the same time!
