Making the best use of skilled Japanese craftsmanship, Azmaya collaborates with artisans, designers, and small local manufactures to revive an old Japanese aesthetic sense.
From beautifully crafted tableware and functionally calculated kitchenware, their specialized housewares are made with a consistent commitment to using traditional techniques and only the highest quality materials found in Japan.
While respecting the traditions of Japanese craftwork, Azmaya creates something new by modifying the design to match tested Japanese “tools” with the present age. The collection features minimalist design reflecting the high level of skill and superior techniques of the artisans today.
Easy to use, made to last. Our new standard in everyday life.
Soak in water for a while before use, so that cooked rice won’t stick too much on the wood, and it makes it easy to serve.
After use, wash gently with cold or warm water. Dry well.
