Gatomikio TSUMUGI Collection

Bringing out the beauty of the material to the fullest is the characteristic of Yamanaka lacquerware.

While preserving the tradition of Yamanaka, the collection pursues the beauty of forms that people intuitively find beautiful.

This elegant shape of wooden soup bowl represents a lily flower, which symbolizes a beautiful woman in Japan.

The craftsmen adjust the angle of the cut and the thickness of the lacquer based on their many years of experience so that the grain of the wood shows beautifully.

On the reverse side, there is a discreet but sophisticated stamp. This is the mark of authenticity.

Black color is also available. It will bring a cool and minimal modern impression to the dining.


GATO MIKIO was founded in 1908 as Gado Woodworks in Yamanaka Onsen, Ishikawa Prefecture, the town of the potter’s wheel.

They inherited the philosophy of the woodworkers who used the wheel to carve wood to make bowls, trays, and other woodwork, and have always valued the beautiful grain of the wood and the perfection of the carefully ground wood.

And they have made many lacquer ware products with a focus on the perfection of the wood.
