Jicon is a Japanese porcelain brand rooted in the history of the Imamura pottery family and the kiln they derive from, Touetsugama kiln founded 350 years ago in the Saga Prefecture. The brand name means "porcelain (JI) in modern times (CON)".
Jicon was created in collaboration with designer Oji Masanori as an offshoot collection of porcelain products for daily life. Today, the succession continues with Hajime Imamura and his wife, Maki Imamura, who continue to craft works using the same materials as their ancestors, including local Amakusa Touseki stone of Arita city.

climate change solutions
& plants a tree for every order
Importing from countries as far as Japan & shipping worldwide has more of an impact than we would like.
That is why we plant a tree for every order + we plant an additional 2 trees each day.
Furthermore, we offset the individual carbon footprint of our staff, including travel per individual under 8,000 km by car or 2 short-haul return flights annually, by funding climate change solutions through Ecologi.
Investing in projects focused on carbon avoidance is not the same as simply buying carbon offset certificates, that is why we have chosen to work with Ecologi.
