HOW IT'S MADE
Established in 1910, KOTODO has been producing handmade tea canisters for over 100 years.
The process begins with cutting out the tin material from a large board. The board is cut into 20 different sizes to accommodate our various tea canisters.
After the tin material is hand-cut, it is then rolled into a cylindrical shape with a special machine. Because this procedure is also carried out by hand, Kotodo tea canisters cannot be made in large quantities.
Once the canisters are in a cylindrical shape, they are put into a special mold to define the area that the top lid will sit on. This process is carried out by inserting a rubber balloon into each cylinder and expanding it to ensure that each canister is evenly formed.
The last step of our manufacturing process is putting a small dent on the inside of the canister and lid so that the lid stops with an audible click.
This ensures that the lids of our patterned canisters stop exactly where the patterns match.
