Based in Tokyo, Musubi Kiln began with our encounters with tableware from all over the world. While traveling around the world, the founder collected traditional dishware unique to each country, as a hobby. He came to realize that those pieces of dishware, each from different countries, were sat in marvelous harmony side by side on the kitchen table.
"This is a familiar feeling I've had before." He pondered and came to realize that this was what he has seen in Japanese tableware. The culture of enjoying harmony was the very culture of Japanese tableware.
Each of us can create our own little world by blending various pieces of tableware. We want to share with people around the world more about such a way of enjoying life unique to Japan. As we grew enthusiastic about this idea, we began selling Japanese tableware in overseas markets. We first set up our website focusing on Kutani ware, a local specialty of the founder's hometown Ishikawa Prefecture.
As we spread the message of our fantastic products, we are convinced that many people all over the world are attracted to the culture of Japanese tableware and are interested in using it in their daily lives. At the same time, we grew our desires to introduce many items of wonderful traditional tableware from Japan and share ideas about how to enjoy life with Japanese tableware. This is how the Musubi Kiln was born.
Musubi Kiln will introduce only products we can offer with confidence among works made by artisans from all over Japan. We will also continue to share ideas about how to make your mealtimes more creative and enriching experience.
