Object of Desire: Rustic, Hand-Hewn Bath Accessories from Japan

August 17, 2021

We’re always on the lookout for stylish TP holders (and other bath essentials). Our latest find: a line of rustic brass paper holders, bath hooks, and towel rails from Muro Kanamono, a metal-working atelier founded in Kyoto in 1802, currently available from Rikumo in Pennsylvania.

Muro Kanamono started as a supplier of handmade nails (wakugi) and hardware for temples and homes; today, they continue to pay homage to their past by producing metal hardware that is inspired by current trends while staying grounded by tradition.

Here’s a look:
