Kinto specialise in creating products that are inspired by the concept of wabi sabi, which is the appreciation of beauty in imperfection and transience.
Wabi sabi is not just a design aesthetic, but also a philosophy and a way of life. It encourages us to slow down, pay attention to the details, and embrace the natural flaws and variations that make each object unique.
