At Morihata, our goal is to connect businesses around the world to some of Japan's top designers and manufacturers.
We partner with like-minded artists and one-of-a-kind brands to source products that are aesthetically pleasing,
functionally superior, steeped in tradition, and made to last.
Kaz and Yuka Morihata met as undergraduates at the Rhode Island School of Design before going on to work for a number of prestigious design and architecture firms - first in New York City, then back home in Tokyo.
Shortly after returning to Japan, Yuka rediscovered a longstanding appreciation for the detailed, quality-first craftsmanship she had grown up with but which was something of a rarity in the U.S. To fill that space, she and Kaz founded Morihata International with the aim of introducing the work of contemporary Japanese artisans to a wider audience.
Every year, the couple returns to Japan to select thoughtful products that evoke the innate elegance, nobility and tactile qualities of modern Japanese goods. From the vintage looms of Imabari to the storied tea fields of Kirishima, our collections are sourced from regions throughout Japan where craftsmanship has long been integral to the concepts of identity, history and culture.
Whether your interest is in Japan-made wares specifically or simply in stocking products of superior quality that will stand out on your shelves, we hope you will request an account with us today.
As is typical for us, in-stock items generally ship out within 1-2 weeks. However, please note that certain global logistical challenges have extended our estimated lead times for out-of-stock products to approximately 6 weeks.
Our team will send you an update with specifics on product availability and lead times once your order is placed.
At any time, please feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
Sit down with a wholesale rep for a free Virtual Info Session, and we’ll include a sample of Morihata Binchotan Charcoal Sticks with your next order.
