Fukyusai Takano Tadao, the founder / former president of our company, was the son of a shopkeeper of bamboo-crafts shop. He therefore got into bamboo since he was little and spent his life for it. A great insight of Sen-no Rikyu, who produced tea utensils made of bamboo through discovering its natural beauty, inspired him to became an artisan of tea utensils. His wishes and skills are taken over by our current craftsmen creating the finest tea utensils not only in bamboo but also using other natural materials. 

弊社の創業者で先代社長の不窮斎 高野忠男は、 生家が竹工芸店を営んでいた影響もあり、幼少より竹に親しみ、 その魅力に傾倒してきました。特に千利休が、自然界が生む竹の美しさを茶道具に用いたその心眼に感服し、茶道具作家としての道を選びました。その遺志と技術は脈々と後人の職人に受け継がれ、現在も弊社は竹に限らず新たな自然素材に取り組み、上質な茶道具作りを続けています。
