Hasami  Porcelain was born under the direction of Takuhiro Shinomoto of Tortoise General Store in Venice, California, whose innovative concept integrates tradition and modernity in tableware.

Hasami, Nagasaki is one of the foremost pottery districts in Japan. Porcelain was first made in the area almost 400 years ago, during the Edo Period. The establishment of a mass production system at an early stage ensured reliability in quality and price, and its rich tradition kept alive.
