Each ring of wood grows thicker and larger to embrace the tree itself and accumulate strength. It takes about 100 years for a tree to be large enough to be made into a plate or tray. To reduce waste, we use the precision and speed of machinery to obtain and refine wood from the mountain forest, while delicate hand sanding creates a high-quality texture. We want to use the strength of the condensed 100 years of growth in solid timber for another century and bring the charm of wood into our daily life. This way of production cherishes trees so we can hand down a rich forest to future generations.

We are strived to create products that deliver comfort and hoping that people can be respectful and appreciative of nature.

Streams nurture forests.
Origin of the brand mark
The logo is an abstraction of a landscape of water flowing from a mountain ridge.
Mountain ranges create ridges and valleys, and water flows through them, creating many streams.
The streams nurture plants, trees, and forests.
We would like to continue to provide the comfort of wood in people's daily lives by receiving lovely trees grown in the forests nurtured by the many streams.
