IWACHU Nanbu Cast Iron Teapot – Testubin Handmade Mari Series Charcoal Grey

$ 159.00

Enrich your tea experience at home with Nanbu-Tekki ironware teapot from Iwate Prefecture. Technique of Nanbu-Tekki developed some 900 years ago, originating in Morioka City and Mizusawa, Oshu City, in Iwate. Each piece is handmade by skilled craftsman using traditional techniques and materials that are sourced from local areas.

Nanbu Tekki requires a process of 64 to 68 different steps to completion. To become an ironware maker, one must go through 15 years of apprenticeship, and the title of master craftsman requires another 40 years of practice.

Nanbu-Tekki is not only beautiful but also highly durable – it’s said to last 100 years. If a piece breaks, you can have it repaired or remade into another object. Nanbu-Tekki can thus be a family treasure that can be passed down to your off springs.
