Interior Chabako Club Ltd. was founded in 1998 by Masumi Pizer and incorporated in 2004 for the purpose of “sustaining and spreading the Chabako”.
By promoting “Interior Chabako🄬”, we aim to stimulate demand for chabako as a whole and revive the industry.In addition to sales them, we have produced instructors all over the country and aim to spread the use of these handcrafted crafts. (100 people as of March 2020)
We are also committed to training our successors in tea box manufacturing. In 2016, we established Maeda Kobo Co. in Kawane (Kawane Honmachi, Haibara-gun, Shizuoka Prefecture), a place of production of chabako, and prepared to take over the business from Maeda Hiroshi’s Maeda Hakanjo to fully promote chabako as a local industry.
In January 2020, we will move to a new plant in Kuwanoyama, Kawane Honcho, where we will focus on training future generations under the technical guidance of Mr. Maeda.
