ABOUT MIJ TABLEWARE
HISTORY OF JAPANESE TABLEWARE - 'Minoyaki', a type of Japanese pottery, finds its origins in the Gifu prefecture located on the central island of Honshu, Japan. An abundance of clay - the raw material for pottery - is found in the region, giving rise to a centuries-old tradition. This region still produces ceramics made by local craftsmen whose experience and skill pay homage to its predecessors while a contemporary design approach takes this form of art to new heights.Encouraged by our unwavering interest in the tableware of this region over the last thirty years, we have developed a collaborative effort between the craftspeople of the area and Made in Japan tableware.This has been an enduring conversation of beauty, design and quality celebrating food and functionality. Our aim is to offer unique products to be used every day to enrich family life in the home & kitchen.
Our ceramic ranges are sourced from small, family-run kilns in Gifu, our lacquerware from Wakayama and the rest of our product range from the length and breadth of Japan. We take pride in the fact that we have been in contact with many of these businesses for so long that we are now dealing with the sons of the fathers we first met. Many cups of tea, too much beer and sake, great food and lots of laughter make our job easy – we always look forward to our buying trips.
We aim to source timeless pieces and to develop new colours and styles in conjunction with makers to complement existing collections, not replace them. The new shapes, colours and patterns we add to our existing ranges are selected with durability and functionality in mind.
Although our long-held loyalties to suppliers and makers remain unchanged, we also seek out new, young makers and designers whose product we believe will complement and enhance our collections.
