Ironware Iwachu
IWACHU
Iwachu, located in Morioka, is one of the finest manufacturers of modern Nanbu ironware, with a company history of over 100 years. Today, craftsmen at Iwachu pay respect to this tradition by infusing each Iwachu product with precision handcraftsmanship throughout the manufacturing process. Iwachu’s tetsubin (iron tea pots), and cookware have earned a well deserved worldwide reputation for their superior quality, beauty, and lasting durability.

Kotobuki Trading is proud to be the exclusive importer and distributor of Iwachu products in the United States.

Iron Tetsubin and Cookware Production at Iwachu.
The production process of making Tetsubin usually consists of 64 to 68 steps. At Iwachu, most of this process is still done by hand and quality is strictly maintained and controlled by a master craftsman known as a “Kamashi”. It requires at least 15 years to become a full-fledged craftsman and 30-40 years to become a “Kamashi”.
