A commitment to materials:
All of the bamboo crafts by Tekara Kobo uses locally grown bamboo from Sado Island, an island near Niigata Prefecture in Japan. Quality blue bamboo is carefully selected and then dried by removing excessive oil components with boiling water and exposing it to sunlight and cold wind. By doing so, the bamboo skin will become glossy and white, and they are also called white bamboo or bleached bamboo. In Japan, this white bamboo is commonly used in making bamboo crafts.
A commitment to aesthetics:
In order to achieve a sophisticated beauty, the artisan uses the traditional knitting technique called "ring arc knitting". By arranging the bamboo stripes in a radial pattern, it forms a shadowy beauty. The dripper is in a conical shape. It is surrounded by bamboo weaving which moderately allows the generation of gas and air. This can avoid interfering with the swelling of coffee powder during the steaming process.
