Handmade canisters, simple in shape and design.

From their atelier in Taito-ku, Tokyo, craftsmen shape metal using traditional hammering and cutting methods, and the carefully polish each canister. Through use and over the course of time, each piece will gradually change in color, taking on a beautiful patina as the metal oxidizes. These canisters are made of solid brass, tin and copper. While traditionally used as a tea caddy, they can also store coffee beans, spices or snacks.
