“Takumi-no-kura”
(Collection of artisans)

Our original line of products which was created from
the points of view of the potteries (producers),
trading companies (retailers) and consumers.

To keep the tradition, it is to innovate it.

Arita-yaki porcelain has its special technique which comes from 400 years of long history. It has influenced some of the most famous ceramics in Europe and it is the pride of Japan.
The “Takumi-no-kura” tableware series was born from the Monozukuri (creating) Project which has the points of view of the three parties: potteries (producers), trading companies (retailers) and consumers. It has been created so that the traditional art of Arita-yaki that is as precious as a World Heritage, could be used in everyday life.

Since we have released the line of “Takumi-no-kura” Shochu liquor glasses in 2005, we have produced many different types of products such as Sake bottles and glasses, beer glasses, curry plates and mugs. And they have become very popular.
