b. benten is an online boutique showcasing a collection of tableware, kitchen tools, coffee and tea accessories, and other housewares products, all handcrafted by highly skilled artists and artisans here in Japan.
In today's culture with surfeit of branding and mass-produced goods, we believe that there is a growing interest in how things are made and an appreciation for craft. And when you invest in crafted, well designed, functional objects for the home the quality of life improves.
We are simply passionate about the exquisitely crafted goods that can be used everyday. All the pieces meet the modern lifestyle while using the technology of traditional craft that has been passed down from generation to generation. We carefully select pieces that are hauntingly beautiful and incredibly difficult to source. Each item has an incredible story behind it.
The shop is named after Benten, the goddess of arts, beauty, wisdom, love, knowledge, good fortune.
We hope to bring you joy and beauty into your life, too.
