BRASS KOBO COASTER
Kobo in Japanese means "rays" or "radiance." It is beautiful, yet very functional, as it does not stick to any glass. The drops of water that run down from the glass to the coaster slide into the ray patterns, creating a space that allows the coaster not to stick to any drink.
At the back of the coaster, there is a silicone ring that prevents it from damaging tables or any surface. It is highly recommended to keep the coasters dry after usage. If any liquid is left on the coasters for a long period of time, the minerals in the water will accumulate creating white stains in a form of white powder.
Futagami is a brass foundry founded in 1897 in Takaoka, Toyama Prefecture, Japan, with over 120 years of history. Specializing in traditional crafts like Buddist alter fittings, Futagami has developed brass casting techniques since its establishment. In 2009, the company introduced its brass livingware brand in collaboration with the designer Oji Masanori, breathing new life into brass, a material gradually disappearing from our everyday lives, by creating beautifully designed livingware products.

- To remove the water stains, please dilute 5 % citric acid with water to make a solution. Use this solution to wipe the coaster with a clean cloth. Please rinse it and then dry well.
