Nambu Tekki is a traditional Japanese ironware founded in the Iwate prefecture of the Tohoku region. The origin of the Nambu Tekki technique can be traced back to the Edo period (1803-1868). Nambu refers to the domain where the craft was established, where the feudal clan invited craftsmen from Kyoto to develop iron tea kettles. The Nambu Tekki craft thrived in cities like Mizusawa due to the wealth of natural resources available - including iron, sand, clay and lacquer.

Nambu Tekki ironware is renowned for its durability, heat retention and austere design. The iron is subject to various processes to prevent rusting, such as baking the ironware in charcoal to create an inner oxide film and further coating the surface with urushi lacquer. The Nambu Tekki craft has officially been certified as a Traditional Craftwork of Japan and it continues to be revered for its enduring beauty and practicality.
