Karmi is a hand-crafted tea canister with a contemporary minimalistic shape that fits in your hand. Karmi is a name inspired by one of the Haiku poetries. It means "lightness."
Each canister is hand-sculpted by artisans in Yamanaka, Ishikawa Prefecture.
Countless stripes on the surface known as "Sensuji (a thousand streaks)" are one of the craftsmen's original techniques. They not only produce exquisite textures but also double as a non-slip surface. The inner cap seals the canister, keeping it airtight and protecting the tea leaves from humidity and temperature.
