The "yui-oke," meaning "bound tub," was an integral part of daily life for the Edo people, serving as a reliable vessel for carrying and storing food. This contemporary wine cooler beautifully captures the essence of Edo craftsmanship, showcasing a design that pays homage to tradition. Meticulously handcrafted using a 300-year-old Sawara cypress sourced from Kiso, Nagano Prefecture, it possesses exceptional water resistance, durability, and natural antibacterial properties. Skilled artisan, also the 4th generation of Okeei, Eifu Kawamata expertly employs a nickel silver hoop to seamlessly bind the precisely cut side plates. When held, the tub surprises with its lightness, while the gentle scent of cypress tantalizes the senses. Its reduced condensation properties is another noteworthy feature, keeping the exterior dry and maintaining the optimal temperature for wine. For more story about Okeei, visit our online media at Kogei Standard.

    Crafted By

    Brand: Okeei

    In 1887, Okeei was founded by Shinemon Kawamata, an artisan of yui-oke in Fukugawa, Tokyo, a town which flourished as a port handling the distribution of lumber. Wooden tubs and rice keepers made by Shinemon had a good reputation as they were well made. Since then, Okeei has faithfully maintained the traditional techniques being the only remaining yui-oke workshop in Tokyo.
