Nousaku

Nousaku was founded in 1916, inheriting a traditional casting technique that has been passed down through multiple generations for over 400 years in Takaoka, Japan. Originally manufacturing Buddhist ritual objects, items for tea ceremony and flower vases made of brass and bronze, they have recently started to manufacture tableware, incense holders and many other interior design items. Nousaku makes consistently high-quality brass and bronze products that marry its casting techniques inherited from the days of old with a modern design.
