KENKAWAI Binchotan Charcoal Stick

€21,00 EUR

  • A simple way to purify your water
  • Well designed by Japanese craftsmen

The traditionally handcrafted charcoal made from Japanese holm oak from Kishu, Japan is known for its purifying and mineralising effects on water and air.

The forests in Kishu, Japan have been maintained and harvested by craftsmen who have been gathering knowledge and perfecting their skills over generations. The slow growing Japanese holm oak, which possesses a finely pored structure and high density, is baked over several days – at first at low temperatures and then at high temperatures with restricted oxygen. 

It mineralises and purifies tap water by absorbing chemicals and lime, making the tap water softer. It can be used as an air freshener by capturing odor from the air. Furthermore, it can be used as a natural fertiliser for plants and even provides protection against electrosmog.

When simply added to a carafe of water, the thousands of microscopic cavities left in the wood effortlessly remove unwanted toxins and impurities, while softening and improving waters taste. Completely natural, the sticks are great for the garden and can be disposed of in soil once they start to diminish in efficacy.

Size: Dia. 15 x L150 mm
Effective to filter: 2 litres of water
Suggested lifespan: 4 to 6 months
User instruction: it is recommended to boil the stick at 100 degrees every 3 weeks, in order to clean and to remove the potentially absorbed bad elements from the stick.

Fair trade, 100% Recyclable, tree-free product labels, printed with vegetable inks. Bio-degradable, recycle-compatible adhesives. Bio-degradable wrapping and bag.

Please note that the carafe is not included.

Japan-Best is first and foremost a story about Japanese craftsmen with the influence of contemporary design. We are inspired by the timeless beauty of traditional Japanese craftsmanship, and their ability to adapt to our modern lifestyle. The more brands we meet, the more passionate we become about the stories behind each product; the skills of the craftsmen, or the long tradition of an object left unchanged for generations yet somehow remaining contemporary.

Japan-Best is a collection of Japanese brands, which we have selected for the originality of their design, the quality of their production, the fact that their production is “Made in Japan”, and the long history that they maintain, quite often for several generations.

Our selection of Japanese food is also based on craftsmanship in agriculture. We choose brands based on how they are made and we love brands that continue to use traditional natural techniques to grow food and prepare it. Good packaging and design is always and added joy to find!
