Gato Mikio Shoten Karmi Tea Canisters




Karmi, a tea canister, just like a work of art


Gato Mikio Shoten was founded in 1908 in Yamanaka, Ishikawa Prefecture. Inheriting the policy of the "kijiya" (Japanese woodworkers), Gato Mikio Shoten's craftsmanship is particular about the perfection of wood grain, which is the basis of lacquerware.

The name "Karmi" refers to one of haiku poets, Matsuo Basho's haikai philosophy, "karumi (軽み)." The products express an open-hearted state of mind that we could feel in our everyday lives, without overly elaborating on knowledge and techniques. The products also represent the philosophy of beautiful design that exudes from the inside of the product.

Karmi Tea Canisters received Good Design Award and Prize of Smaller Enterprise Agency's Director in 2010, Germany's Design Plus Award in 2011, and won a silver medal of the world's most authoritative design award, the Designpreis Deutschland 2012 in Germany, among more than 1500 other candidates.

Just got my package and want to pass my deepest appreciation to you all. I LOVE all the products I purchased and THANK YOU for packaging them up so carefully. This is my first time buying from you, but I am now your big fan! I will definitely recommend your store on my network. Thank you again, and I will follow your facebook page and promote your store on my network! Really love it and thank you. I am a big fan of your store and a big fan of anything made in Japan. One of my struggles living outside of Japan is that most of the Japanese brands don't ship internationally - as such, I am very happy that I found your website and store.
