About the brand: Hechimon is a registered trademark of Marui ceramics. Shigaraki is counted as one of the six ancient kilns in Japan and is said to have a long history of 1260 years. In 1976 (Showa 51), the country designated it as a traditional craft. The original climbing kilns set up by Marui in 1925 still stand today.
