Hasami Porcelain is made of a mixture of porcelain substance and clay, at a specific ratio. Samples made precedently in Hasami were recreated, and a glaze was developed to bring out the natural material.
The size of Hasami Porcelain products are based on a fixed module. Mugs, bowls, trays… all share the same diameter so they can be stacked freely, stored and transported easily. They are also multi-functional. For example, a tray can also be used as a lid.
The inspiration behind the stacking mechanism, and the functionality of nesting, come from tiered boxes - traditional lacquer ware - used in Japanese cuisine. Hasami Porcelain, like tiered boxes, can be used in various scenes - indoors and outdoors, individually and as a set.
Hasami, Nagasaki is one of the foremost pottery districts in Japan. Porcelain was first made in the area almost 400 years ago, during the Edo Period, and was not only distributed all over Japan but also exported to Europe through the port of Nagasaki. The establishment of a mass production system at an early stage ensured reliability in quality and price, and its rich tradition kept alive. HASAMI PORCELAIN was born under the direction of Takuhiro Shinomoto whose innovative concept integrates tradition and modernity in tableware.

In the late 1900s century a small brush manufacturing started out in Stockholm. It was a successful movement so successful that it remains today. Now, as then, every brush is made by hand by visually impaired craftsmen. It brings new dimensions to the concept of sensitively made by hand. Today there are 14 employees at Iris Hantverk. The core of the business is the brush binding manufacturing at Sandsborgsvägen, Enskede – here 5 visually impaired craftsmen from different cultures make brushes according to an old Swedish tradition. They also work with visually impaired craftsmen in Estonia.
