Like humans who are all different from each other,
there are no two pieces of wood that are the same.



With our wishes as "Kijishi"


Wood is the venerable being given by the nature. It has always been supporting our lives since time begin. We accept what they are without controling or changing its innate qualities and we have always been living side-by-side as partners. However, even if two third of our Japanese national land is covered by nature, we tend to think that wood is just a material which can be replaced by other chemical ones and forget how important they are nowadays.
 We, Shozu Shikko, are the artisanal company of Kijishi, a wood turner. As a part of production of Japanese traditional lacquer-work, we've been producing the wooden basis more than 70 years utill today. This is us who communicate with this precious natural resource everyday and who understand them the most. With all our wishes as Kijishi, we would like to make you be interested in wood again and enjoy to live with. Please open your heart and wake your senses up with our chaming wooden brands.

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.
