- High-quality hardwood is expertly and sustainably harvested
- The wood is baked by skilled artisans in a specialised kiln – first at a low temperature, then at a scorching 1200ºC – causing the wood to carbonise and activate, enlarging its pore structure to maximise toxin adsorption
- 7 – 14 days later, the carbonised wood is removed from the kiln and smothered in a mixture of earth, sand and ash, giving it a whitish hue
- Once cooled, the ‘white charcoal’ is carefully hand-cut into KURO-Bō Sticks and Kōins.
We’re delighted to be working with such an innovative little company and love being part of a global movement.
