Inro & Tobacco Ware

The Japanese love of fine craftmanship and detailed work is also evident in our Inro & Tobacco Ware. Skilled artisans hand carved and lacquered Inros into individual works of art.  Artisans also hand carved intricate Ojime and Netsuke.  They worked with precious materials such as coral, agate and stag horn to create intricate decorations for Inros. Specialist artisans handmade Deerskin Tobacco Pouches decorated with Netsuke.  Other skilled artisans collaborated to create Netsuke's which were individual works of art.   They also created Pipes cases hand made from wood, ray skin and tortoishell and intricately detailed and lacquered.
