Futagami, a brass foundry founded in the city of Takaoka, Toyama Pref. Japan in 1897 launched a brass livingware brand named "FUTAGAMI."
Brass has long been used in Japan in various fields such as metal fittings for architecture, ships, and furniture as it has corrosion resistance property and moderate workability.
It has a long history as a material for arts and crafts or Buddhist altar equipment as its texture is gentle with an elegant luster.
Brass products gradually change their colour over the course of many years due to oxidisation. The longer they are used, the richer and subtler they become, dissolving into the human heart and the environment.
