Based in Nibutani, Hokkaido, Ramgu produces everyday tools carved from local katsura wood, adorned with intricate patterns that have been used by members of the Ainu community for generations.

The design of this cutting board draws inspiration from an ancestral Ainu tool known as menokoita, historically used both as a cutting board and a bowl. Ainu patterns, steeped in heritage, include elements such as aiushinoka (a shape resembling a thorn) and moreunoka (a spiral shape).

Each board is meticulously finished by a young apprentice craftsperson, utilising techniques handed down through generations.

Nibutani is located at the western edge of Hokkaido’s Hidaka region, surrounded by rich nature, and is known as an area where Ainu culture is strongly preserved.

If the product becomes dry, please apply a drying oil like linseed oil periodically. When using olive oil or similar oils, it can tend to become sticky, so please apply a small amount and thoroughly wipe it off before use.
