KANAYA is the brand by a traditional casting artwork technique of Takaoka douki (Toyama /Japan).
Takaoka douki started when a Kaga daimyo, Toshinaga MAEDA, summoned seven casters to the Kanaya-machi of Takaoka City to promote the area’s prosperity in 1611 (Keicho 16).
Then KANAYA came into being from 2011 (the 400th anniversary year of Takaoka douki). KANAYA offers a range of items adapted to our modern life and created to bring functionality and aesthetics to metal casting products carefully processed by craftsmen, while addressing its brand design concept: “to share man’s life moments of abundance”.
KANAYA provides pleasure as it ages gracefully with ownership. Growing beauty through time is fascination. Gently caressing the products day after day brings out an elegant sheen.
We hope to create something that attracts people.
