Kinto is a Japanese brand that is all about slowing down and enjoying the little things in life. They pair this with a beautiful simple design aesthetic which I really like. Especially their ceramic and tea products have caught my interest:
Unitea is composed of items with a unified diameter. Jugs, cups, strainers, and lids can be mixed and matched just how you like it. Customize by pairing the strainer with the jug to enjoy tea with several people, or set the same strainer inside the mug to make tea for yourself. With this series, you can purchase additional parts when you have new members in your family or if you accidentally break a piece (which happens to everybody, right?).
The ceramic products of Kinto have an organic and pleasant texture of clay. When used, the pieces give warmth and reassurance in your palm. Its production takes place in the traditional pottery village of Hasami in Nagasaki, Japan. Local craftsmen and Kinto’s product planning team work hand in hand, employing inherited knowledge and creativity to conceive “new Japanese tableware.” For Kinto, it has been 15 years since their location was set up in Hasami. Residing there are local staffs born and raised in the village, with years of experience in ceramic and porcelain production.
