History

History

The HARIO craft, dating back to 1921

Since 1921, we have been making glass for over 90 years. Originally our craftspeople made laboratory equipment and tableware hand by hand. Gradually machine production evolved, and there have been less people inside the factories nowadays. We started this brand to go back to our roots, provide handmade products, and inherit the handmade craft to the next generation. We will continue to breathe life into the very pure material of "heat-resistant glass."

Design

Design

Shapes possible because it's heat-resistance glass

"Heat-resistance glass" made by HARIO is not only strong against heat. The glass can be stretched, connected, and is easy to shape. Using those characteristics, it is possible to create delicate designs. It is also very light in weight compared to normal glass, and will be less of a stress wearing it.

Craftsmanship

Craftsmanship

Crafted hand by hand

Here at HARIO Lampwork Factory, the craftspeople make every accessory hand by hand. By continuing to craft through hand, we can raise the level of our craftspeople, leading to new craft and products.
