"Futagami" originated in the city of Takaoka, Toyama Pref. as a brass foundry in 1897. One of the oldest brass casting companies in Japan - Futagami continues to create timeless, minimal products that borrow traditions from ancient Buddhism.
It's continued success is maintained through a focus on quality handcrafted furnishings that intend to last for generations. The brass used in their products oxidises over the course of time to develop a rich patina; the more it is used the richer and more nuanced it becomes.
There are many types of casting methods in brass products, but Futagami use a very raw-type method through simple and playback casting.
