Do you know how much about "knot"? This dark and hard part of wood has been throwing away as defective beacause of its difficulity to whittle and its apprerance. But in the reality, Knot is quite important part for woods where new branches come out to grow and there's no problem to use as vessel. As Kijishi, we've been thinking for focusing on this little but energic part of life and we concieved to create this brand, Mebuki. Mebuki means sprout in Japanese. We put the spotlight to Knot to redefine the value and to show its potential by our idea. Each knot is completely original and this means each knot exist only one in the world. Please find out your own Mebuki and bring to your life as a good fortune.
Shokyu is inherited brand from our first generation which exist more than 70 years. This brand has a aim to make people be interested in wooden vessel again and be aware the comfort to use them. We put so much efforts in creation of this brand to make it endearing and easy to reach. To combine the traditional technique and new idea such as nano-glass coating, Shokyu became more focus on its the beauty of wood character. Please enjoy the originality of wood which is different form each other and find own preference.
