Made in Higashi-Osaka Crafted with precision at Higashi-Osaka where metal-working industry is thriving.

The ring of Wakka is produced in Higashi-Osaka: Timbre’s hometown. About big iron ring, we have pursued a round shape in order to heighten the effect of adsorption. Normally to produce a ring, the round bar is formed into round ring and then it is welded, but with this method the surface could not be finished perfectly because joint part is too hard to polish well.Thus, to attain smoothly-shaped ring, with great craft of Higashi-Osaka, the ring is produced cutting steel from scratch. 
About fitting (gold colour) is finished by pickling the brass. Usually this brass should be plated, but the brass part is not plated because it is enjoyable to see the changing depth colour (using commercial metal polisher, vinegar or lemon juice is effective to shine the brass again).

Made in Asahikawa Crafted with precision at Asahikawa where it is town of furniture manufacturing industry.

The wooden base in produced at Asahikawa, Hokkaido.The base is crafted with highly sophisticated technique cultivated by furniture and small product manufacturing in the area.Complicated cutting work has been done for the wooden base, which one cannot imagine from its appearance, that’s why rhythmical sound of Wakka can be produced.
The natural wood grain of maple and walnut (wooden base) finished by hand polishing makes up attractiveness of Wakka that fits with the entrance or room as a part of interior.
