Working with well-established craftsmen from Kawada in the Fukui prefecture, the glasses are made using ancestral Ding-style techniques.
Blending traditional craftsmanship with subtle beauty of small imperfections and the practicality of modern design every single model is not only a functional accessory but also a beautiful and portable work of art.
