Pieces of Japan – Hako Incense White
Pieces of Japan:
“We see the beauty in high-quality products that tell a story, a story about you, the craftsmen who made it, and the Japanese way of life. In bridging Japan’s artisans with the world, we hope to share the essence of simple luxury and help keep generations of tradition alive. With an ecosystem that cycles around raising awareness through the stories we tell, tying demands for real Japanese crafts to the craftsmen who make them, and investing in the next generation, we’ve created a sustainable way for craftsmen to continue their work.
Delivering on our core values of being ethical, functional, lasting and sustainable, POJ Studio is a story of connection, of time, and paring down to the importance of personal touch.
The Japanese way of keeping in harmony with the seasons and the local environment will always be at our core. That’s why Pieces of Japan is committed to prioritizing the sustainability of craftsmen and the natural resources that support them. We believe that in sharing beautiful, durable, handmade products that last for generations, we can take steps away from our current throwaway culture to create meaningful connections with the things we own.
In addition to weaning away from mass production, all of our products are packaged in recycled and reusable wood, paper and cloth material. Our repair services by professional craftsmen and active engagement in initiatives to sustainably grow raw materials for these crafts are just some of the ways we work to make a difference.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Repair, and Respect.
With your help, we can take steps to redefine consumer culture for the better.”
