Kaikado and the Japan Handmade Team

Today I got a chance to hang with Takahiro Yagi from the famed metal works shop, Kaikado. Taka san, who is part of the Japan Handmade group, will become the 6th generation head of the family business, which is based in Kyoto and has been making metal tea caddies for nearly 140 years. Recently, Kaikado has found a large audience outside of Japan with its timeless yet modern design. I will be visiting the workshop next month in Kyoto and shooting some videos and photos with them. Please stay tuned. 

And thanks Taka san for the custom scoop. #teaballer
