TOKYO, Feb. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Tiger Corporation will launch its new stainless steel bottle "MJX-A048" in the middle of February 2018, showcasing Japanese traditional craftwork and dimensional designs manufactured using the latest technologies.

Tiger Corporation has been manufacturing and releasing thermos products since the company's establishment in 1923.  The stainless bottle which is made with our vacuum insulation technology developed and cultivated through many years, along with the latest technologies on surface processing, have resulted in a product showcasing an uneven surface and three dimensional designs that can be even felt by a slight touch.

It has three kinds of designs: "KIRIKO," "KIMONO," and "TATAMI," which all express traditional beauty crafts representing Japan. In recent years, the sales volume of Japanese stainless thermos has been increasing, including visitors to Japan, who come for the traditional Japanese craft designs and cultures.

Product Features

1. New texture: Three dimensional designs with Japanese traditional feel and sense of texture by just touching it.

The three design motifs of "KIRIKO," "KIMONO," and "TATAMI" are applied to the product, with traditions representing Japan and learned from generation to generation.  The texture is felt by researching and developing methods to make layers for each of the three design motifs such as, sharply cut lines of Kiriko glass, woven textiles of Kimono cloths with numerous threads, and mesh of woven Tatami with soft rush.  By stacking each layer with colors and detailed design patterns one by one, a three dimensional feel is realized and the design motifs' textures can be felt by a simple touch, thus the user can enjoy our product every time when they grab the bottles.


It is said that "Kiriko cut glass" was born in Japan's Edo period developed by an Edo merchant named Kyubei Kagaya after he was inspired by what he saw in imported products. At the time Kiriko glassware was used as a daily product by ordinary people, and its beauty was refined and cultivated through the appreciation and enjoyment of daily life.


"Kimono" is considered one of Japan's cultural treasures. Kimono designs' motifs are inspired from seasonal plants and daily products, as people enjoy the change of seasons by wearing them.


Tatami is one of Japan's original culture icons and most Japanese traditional cultural activities such as tea ceremony, flower arrangement and incense ceremony were born and are always held on Tatami; thus, those ceremonies and formalities could not be developed without Tatami.
