Incense with a variety of soothing scents, they are designed to burn safely resting on the reusable felted heat pad provided - each leaf burns for around 7mins. They are also designed to work as decorative potpourri. High quality natural essential oils are used to produce long-lasting scents - the aromas last up to 3 months.

The canister is an heirloom object that honours a century of traditional craftsmanship, built to be used for generations. Copper is a beautifully fluid material, changing and developing a deep patina as the years go by.

ABOUT THE ARTISANS

COPPER BY KATO SEISAKUSHO

Kato Seisakusho has been manufacturing traditional Japanese tea vessels since 1895. Every component is cut and rolled from sheet metal, using foot pedal operated cutters, and assembled with pressure as opposed to solder. This process has remained consistent throughout the decades, with most of the work performed artisans who have immersed in the craft for close to a century.

Founded in 1893, Japanese incense maker Kunjudo is a family-run business with over 120 years experiece in Awaji Island - the birthplace of Japanese incense culture. They've created the world's first and only leaf-shaped incense, bringing together centuries-old handcrafted incense-making with creative contemporary practice.
