Nambu ironware  1985-

Chobundo has been in business for about 70 years, inheriting techniques cultivated over its long history. Since its establishment, the company has been most dedicated to making iron kettles. The will of the first generation to "make iron kettles that will be loved for a long time" has been passed down to the third generation Chobun Hasegawa. He has been certified as a traditional craftsman and continues to hone his skills. An iron kettle is not only a tool for boiling water, but also a tool that can pass the time with the owner. In the past, iron kettles were handed down from generation to generation with the memories of each generation. The passage of time fosters attachment to the tools and brings richness to our daily lives. Iron kettles have a charm that can only be found in tools that have been used since long ago. We hope you will enjoy our iron kettles as a companion for your daily life.
