£24 per item

Hino Akiko, an active promoter of Japanese tools and hand-crafts, has gathered together the knowledge of kitchenware makers to teach you how to care for your utensils and continue to improve and develop them with use. This knowledge, that used to be passed down from one generation to the next, has become harder to find, yet the more people learn about how to handle and care for their tools the more they enjoy using them. In this book, Hino Akiko teaches you how to bring out the charm of tools, developing their distinctive texture and character as you use them over time, rather than bringing them back to their brand new condition.

Hino Akiko is the founder and director of wholesale business, Studio Boke. She is an active promoter of Japanese crafts and everyday utensils and connects artisans with buyers from department stores and retailers. She has been involved in a number exhibitions and events promoting Japanese crafts. Akiko has published several books and also contributes articles to magazines and newspapers.
