“An innovative form of smell that paints the air”

Ku is a washi (Japanese paper) that releases fragrance without a need to be burned. Designed collaboratively by TRUNK Design and the incense masters in Awaji Isand, Ku has been created by delicately mixing the natural perfumes within the paper and then spreading it out in a thin layer to dry.

Sage: A refreshing, fresh botanical scent with a hint of astringency and spiciness.

Now you can enjoy the Japanese culture of "soradaki”: the pleasure of enjoying a faint distant bouquet that floats between spaces. Whether it be on the walls designing the space you are in, or included within letters to loved ones so as to share delightful scents, or to simply enjoy the surroundings burning a subtly sophisticated incense, Ku becomes an essential soothing part of your daily life.

Trunk Design rethinks and redesigns standard everyday items, creating innovations that are both easier and simple to use in sizes and portions, with designs that you want to keep beside you at all times. They rethink what already exists, creating something even better.

Choose from 5 beautiful scents: Japanese Cypress / Marin Woody / Sage / Lavender / Tea Tree

MANUFACTURING PROCESS:

  1. Knead the powder and add aroma: The Machillus Thunbergii tree (‘tabu no ki’) powder is kneaded with water to make clay, then blended with fragrant wood for the aroma, and dye is added for colour.
  2. Powder a block of incense: Once the incense blocks are cut into sticks, it is ground into powder using the same stone mortar used in soba noodle shops.
  3. Filter with ‘kozo’ (paper mulberry): Filter with ‘kozo’ (paper mulberry) which is the raw material of Japanese paper.
  4. Dry: Gently pressing down to drain the liquid from washi. When it dries, the Japanese paper incense is complete.
  5. Cut into leaf shape: The product is completed by cutting it into the shape of a leaf.

HOW TO USE:

  • Tear the leaves: The leaves can be placed inside wallets, card cases, or into glass containers to be used as a diffuser.
  • Light up and place on mat: : Set the leaves on fire, then extinguish. If the fire is left on, the scent will not be prominent. Please then place the smoking leaves on the included mat, with the mat placed on an ashtray or something similar.
