Established in 1972, Kinto started out as a wholesaler of tableware in Shiga, Japan. They eventually began developing our own line of products, with a passion to create products that bring comfort and inspiration into the everyday life. Kinto believe life is about slowing down and seeing the beauty of nature in the change of seasons or savouring a delightful dish with close family and friends to unwind and feel wholesome. Kinto imagine the scenes that enrich your life to develop and bring you products with genuine creativity and thoughtfulness.
