Made with stainless steel on the outside, this soy sauce serving bottle is lined with titanium on the inside to reduce salt corrosion and odour transfer. The floating piece inside reduces contact with the air and prevents the seasoning from oxidizing, protecting the freshness and flavour. In addition, the spout design cuts down on drips and allows for high accuracy and a smooth pour. You can easily adjust the momentum of the flow by tilting it in different angles, down to just a few drops. Natural wood is used for the bottom, so you can set it down on any table face without worry of scratching or marking the surface, and the minimalist aesthetic ensures a nice match amidst any table setting.
Tsubamesanjo, Niigata Prefecture is a town famous for its metal processing and technological evolution. With the history and traditions of such manufacturing still preserved by craftsmen in this area, new advanced industrial technology continues to develop, making Tsubamesanjo homewares ideal products for the modern home, while still living within tradition.
Tsubame and Sanjo, often referred to as “mid-prefecture,” are two cities located almost in the center of Niigata Prefecture. Tsubame-Sanjo is famous for its metal processing, but it is also a region rich in nature – thanks to the Shinano river, Japan’s longest, that runs through the region – and is known as a production center for delicious rice and fruits. Its fertile land has long contributed to a harvest of agricultural products and prosperity.
The tradition of metal fabrication in these two towns dates back over 400 years to the Edo period (1603-1867), with the manufacturing of metal nails marking a turning point in Japan’s industrial revolution. Since then, Tsubame-Sanjo has become one of the world’s leading technological zones, continuously developing new ways to improve and evolve industrial technologies to meet new challenges amid changing times. But time-honoured techniques of the past are not forgotten. Some traditional industries, such as Tsuiki copperware and forging, are still passed down in an unbroken line from generation to generation, while simultaneously embracing present-day lifestyles with contemporary metal products and tools that no modern household can do without. In this way, the manufacturing tradition of Tsubame-Sanjo continues to evolve.
