Since 1972, Yamacoh Co. has sought to achieve unity between Japanese beauty and function. The Japanese word, youbi, translates to “functional beauty,” where the essential beauty of something is revealed through functional use.
Yamacoh woodenware products are made using Japanese woods such as Hinoki and Sawara (types of Japanese Cypress). The wood is known for its delicate lines and smooth surface. In the hands of skilled craftspeople, beauty and function come together.
