Story

On our latest trip to Japan, we stopped by little backstreet markets, cute kitchenware stores, antique second hand shops and small family run businesses to find a selection of unique often one of a kind pieces. 

We came across this woodworker on our travels who believes in keeping craftsmanship and woodworking alive, moving away from the mass produced products that are cheap and easily available but focusing on the quality materials and workmanship. Each piece is made slowly by hand and using only low tech machinery, creating pieces built to last.
