Since 1997, we have been promoting eco-friendly manufacturing. Nagano Prefecture SDGs promotion company: registration number 1573. (Yes) Ezo Carving Crafts Co., Ltd. We use wood from Azumino, Shinshu, and aim to create ethical products that are friendly to people, the environment, and society. Apple tree handicrafts, which are made by regenerating apple trees in Azumino through 10 processes, are popular. Among them, the “Apple Tree Stamp” made from apple trees in Azumino was “the first apple tree stamp in Japan” that acquired a utility model right in 2000. We also carry out lacquer repainting and repair maintenance so that you can use the wood that has grown over many years with care. I want to offer the best hospitality to those who come to Azumino with an experience that has never been done anywhere else! With that in mind, we offer chopstick making experience and laser engraving experience. It's a thoughtful experience, so it's a one-of-a-kind experience filled with ideas (#^.^#). Azumi Kihashi Fab (Fab) is a coined word that includes the two meanings of "Fabrication" and "Fabulous", and is a general term for all manufacturing activities. The craftsman, Kawaguchi, creates products full of ideas, and we aim to be a shop where everyone can make them.
The experience of making chopsticks at Azumi's Wooden Chopsticks Fab Factory is different from chopstick making, where you only need to sandpaper, add color, and just apply a planer to the top of the shaft. It is an experience that can only be done here. In addition to creating the Japanese culture of chopsticks, you can also design chopsticks to your liking.... Hear the pleasant sound of wood carved with a visual planer. Wash your hands and use them for a long time.Tactile sensation.Taste the deliciousness of chopsticks and rice made by yourself.Experience the five senses to experience the taste. Rice tastes better when you use chopsticks you made yourself! It is our pleasure to have you feel every day
Most chopsticks in Japan are made by machine, mostly synthetic resin and synthetic paint. Chopsticks are something you put in your mouth, so you want to avoid chemical paints. Lacquer has been used since the Jomon period, and the sap collected from trees is a renewable resource that is kind to the earth and safe for the body. Chopsticks that are carved from wood and coated with lacquer are very valuable chopsticks. You can also purchase 10 x pentagonal chopsticks cut by Kawaguchi, Mofu² chopsticks with super non-slip processing, and ICHIMATSU chopsticks. Use local wood, cut by hand, and use safe chopsticks that use natural paints for a sustainable day!
We have been promoting eco-friendly manufacturing for 25 years. We have made stamps, straps, and chopsticks using eco-friendly wood made from recycled apple trees that are discarded after pruning. We will start with what we can do to promote sustainable living using environmentally friendly wood and paint. This initiative has been recognized and has been registered as a Nagano Prefecture SDGs promotion company. Registration number: 1573
I started making chopsticks in 2011 and have been making chopsticks with about 10,000 people. The Kanna stand devised by Kawaguchi craftsmen is the only facility in Japan where you can experience making chopsticks without using a shaft.
Kawaguchi, the craftsman, and Sumie Kawaguchi, the store manager. We are both waiting for you.
