Takaoka in Toyama Prefecture is famous for its rich traditions in handmade metal works. The local industry of processing bronze and creating exquisite Buddhist altar fittings and works of fine arts and crafts has a history of more than 400 years. KANAYA is a modern brand that brings the traditional techniques of Takaoka bronzeware to contemporary lifestyles.
The original KANAYA bowls are skillfully crafted items that combine vessels made of aluminum treated with traditional Japanese colors and bases. The subdued elegant texture of the rust-based finish and the bright natural feel of the Japanese oak used for making the base are harmoniously combined to create a unique ambience.
The lineup consists of three types of bowls: wine cooler, flower pot, and multipurpose bowl. The products come in four color variations: silver rust, red rust, black rust, and blue rust. They can be used for a broad variety of applications, adding a touch of beauty and delight to a contemporary lifestyle. The bowls boast refined craftsmanship, enhanced with an attractive modern design, and bring elegance to living spaces.
