DETAILS

  • Thanks to its favourable climate, the best incense in the world comes from Awaji. Just off the coast of Kobe. The Koh-Shis, masters of scent, make incense in line with a thousand year old tradition that is handed down from father to son. They alone master the four production stages. First, the all-natural ingredients are prepared and mixed: exotic woods, plants and herbs, vegetable resin and perfume. Then the paste is kneaded, squeezed and shaped before being left to dry in the west wind for three days before being gathered into bundles.

ABOUT the MAKER

Astier de Villatte

Astier de Villatte ceramics are handmade in their Parisian workshops. Each piece is unique, as a result of manual work and the natural method of drying. The white enamel allows an irregular glimpse of the brown clay underneath.

The production of ceramic objects is a long and delicate process. Each piece is entirely made by one craftsperson. In fact, you can find engraved on each piece the initials of Astier de Villatte and of the craftsperson who made it.
