Made in Arita, Japan.
KIHARA, INC. is a Japanese porcelain producing company based in Arita; a well know historical porcelain industrial area with a 400-year history. When you see Arita porcelain products, you realize how they differ from other porcelain, especially in the tone of white and beautiful artwork. There was a time when, through the VOC (Dutch East India Company), a great deal of Arita porcelain was imported to Europe. Arita now has traditional techniques that have remained unchanged for 400 years mixed with modern techniques like 3D shape designing & machining in porcelain. Now time the time has come to show new types of Arita porcelain demonstrating an accumulation of fresh techniques and the original craftsman tradition. We are continually searching for new and innovative ways to introduce Arita porcelain to the world and are looking to the next 400 years.
