Evaluation

In Japan, there are many areas that have historical significance in tableware. However, it is not easy to work with different artisans to offer a variety of high-quality items that enable table coordination. This series perfectly achieves all that. There are more than 10 items in the first series, including plates, cutlery and glasses. You can see the meticulous planning involved in ensuring the quality of the series by thoroughly considering every detail for easy-to-use tableware, such as the shape of the cutlery, angle of the spoons and smoothness of the lip on the glasses. The fact that the pricing is reasonable so that it could be used daily is the sheer result of the company's efforts. It received the judges' high appraisal for both the design and business style.
