Kenkawai

Japanese brand Kenkawai produces hand-crafted charcoal goods for everyday use, with a focus on understated luxury and wellbeing. 


Kenkawai, a Japanese name, translates to 'health' and 'river outfall' and pays homage to the founder's grandfather, Kazuo Kawai, who ran a typesetting workshop in Kobe.


The traditionally harvested activated charcoal is made from Japanese holm oak from Kishu, Japan and is known for its purifying effects.
