b. benten is an online boutique showcasing a collection of tableware, coffee and tea accessories, kitchen tools, and other housewares products, all handcrafted by highly skilled artists and artisans here in Japan.
We are passionate about the exquisitely crafted goods that you can use everyday. All the pieces meet the modern life and style while using the technology of traditional craft that has been passed down from generation to generation. Every piece is unique and rare, as it has an incredible story behind it and made in small runs by hand.
In today's culture with surfeit of branding and cheap mass-produced goods, 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.
The shop is named after Benten, the goddess of everything that flows: water, time, words, speech, eloquence, and knowledge. She brings good luck and fortune into your life and we hope that we will get to do the same.
