hibi 10 Minute Aroma; the story
The hibi story starts with two traditional industries in the Hyogo prefecture of Japan; matches and incense. Before hibi was introduced in 2015, there was a 3,5 year period of trial and error where the two industries experimented and shared knowledge. Their main starting point was the idea that incense could be lit in the same way we strike a match. As Japanese incense is generally very brittle, a clever solution had to be created. A precise recipe of incense and washi pulp was developed, creating solid sticks with the exact amount of incense to have a perfect intense scent for 10 minutes. It may look like an ordinary wooden match, but it is definitely not.
Our hibi factory tour
In June 2019, we were so lucky to visit the hibi factories. Here, we learned more about the brand, their factories and what it takes to produce a match (and at these large the volumes!). On instagram there is a small highlighted story about it within our Japan 2019 trip. We are working on our blog to show you more.

The incense of Awaji Island and the matches of Harima:
These two traditional industries of Hyogo Prefecture first encountered each other in 2011. The collaboration started with the idea of an incense that could be lit like striking a match and was followed by 3 years of trial and error., An aromatic product with properties of strength and fragrance was developed, which did not break even when struck like a match.
The names of products and packaging were developed to convey the sensibility of today’s Japan.
All those things were ‘designs’ to create a new way of enjoying fragrance.
The brand name hibi means ‘day to day’, or daily, in Japanese. It was given with the hope that you would keep it around you every day and freely enjoy its fragrance, matching each day’s mood or occasion. The logo’s design combines two of the Chinese character ‘日’ (day) set next to each other.
We’re proud to carry hibi and present it to our customers in the Netherlands and internationally via our shop online.
