Made in Japan:
Our production facility is in Osaka Prefecture, Japan. Mitani-san (he's the one in grey) has been in business for over 50 years. His team carry out all the machining work for the Twoodie Gems. Masao-san (in green) operates another facility nearby that assists with sanding and finishing.
This is the drying room. Wood must be dried for up to three years before being used.
This is where the magic happens. All Gems are handmade by skilled craftspeople. It's so calm.
The wood storage area. Our wood is sourced from local suppliers in Osaka.
Our Japan team (in order of height, not seniority).
Historical Osaka Castle (not far from our production facility).
