Discover the exquisite craftsmanship of Iga City with this beautiful rainbow-colored mug, part of the Bokksu Pride Collection. Made of traditional Iga ware, this mug is not only a functional piece but also a symbol of community and inclusivity.

About Iga Ware:
Iga-yaki, or Iga ware, is a type of ceramics made in the Iga region of Mie Prefecture. The clay used in Iga ware is renowned for its high fire resistance, making it ideal for earthenware pots and heat-resistant tableware. This tradition has been upheld for centuries, with Iga ware designated as a traditional craft.

Special Significance:
This mug represents the harmonious blend of tradition and modernity, created by a gay couple, Katsunori and Hiro, who moved to Iga. With the support of understanding local people and businesses, they have revitalized local industries by crafting “kumi-himo” (braided cords) and Iga pottery.

Celebrate the artistry and inclusivity of Iga City with this unique and meaningful Iga ware mug, perfect for your daily use or as a thoughtful gift.
