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.
About the products:
- Please be noted that as each piece of works is handcrafted by the artisan, we aren't able to provide the exactly same piece of product as shown in the images once it has been sold.
- The natural bamboo colour will become darker after you have been using it for a while. It's a common change to natural bamboo.
- Please wipe dry using a soft cloth after each use to prevent water from staying into the bamboo, which may cause dark stains. Please avoid storing under direct sun or in a humid space. Do not soak in water over a long time. Do not put in a dish washer.
- Since the material is natural bamboo, grains and colour may vary. If you have completed placing an order, we will assume you accept any of these natural variables. Thank you very much for your understanding!
