GALLERY
Here is a display of our products from the foundation of the company until today.
FACTORY
Here you can view through glass panels the delicate manufacturing process, from the selection of material to detailed processing. You will be impressed by the finesse and dynamic movement of the hands of our artisans.
1.Drying of wood
We control very carefully the drying of the wood. You can sense the transmission of the wisdom and experience of our ancestors.
2.Cutting
We cut the wood to the same length and thickness. This stage is the starting point of the production process of our chopsticks.
3.Material selection
The wood in our chopsticks is classified into three categories, Premium model, Deluxe model and Standard model, depending on the grain and colour of the wood.
4.Assembling
Minute attention is required for assembling the different materials. Our philosophy is “creation of new material”.
5.Shaping
We plane the cutting and assembled pieces by 0.5mm. The shaping stage involves a repetition of “Cutting”, “Drying” and “Humidity control”.
6.Polishing
Our craftsmen polish the tip of our chopsticks by hand. The finesse of the tip is particulary appreciated. This smooth finish is the essential characteristic and attraction of Marunao.
