Hasami Porcelain x Elemense: Simple Design and Calm Scents to Awaken Your Senses

When Tortoise General Store owner Taku Shinomoto designed the Elemense incense holder he envisioned a self-contained design different than other incense sets.  When in use, the visual focus would only be on the simple burning of the incense.  All of the components for burning incense–from the burner, the falling ash, the lighter to the extra sticks of incense–would be discreetly hidden out of sight and contained inside.
Made from the same porcelain and clay mixture as Hasami Porcelain, this incense holder is the collaborative brainchild between Nippon Kodo, the oldest incense producer in Japan with a four century legacy, and designer of Hasami Porcelain Taku Shinomoto to update the traditional and sacred ritual of burning incense in a style befitting our modern life.  We've restocked our Elemense incense holders in the black and grey finish, as well as all five popular Elemense incense scents.
