100 years of family business

Geochang Yugi which is a famous family enterprise of traditional Yugi

 
100 years of family business for four generations
Geochang Yugi, which has been carrying on its unique technique for over 100 years and four generations
since 1924, has brought a whole light based on its aesthetic philosophy. We create 'works' manually
that reveal the original value of the materials, not the 'products' that are produced mechanically at the factory.
 
Philosophy of Sincerity ‘Handicraft’,
The only bowl in the world
Geochang Yugi makes proper bowls
by the hand of craftsmen, not by a machine.
The signature engraved on each piece is a wish
of Geochang Yugi to give everyone something special.
Reasonable persistence
Geochang Yugi products
increase the value of bronzeware
by making with high quality casting.
The fine machining of castings makes
the surface smooth and easy to maintain.
For better health 'Geochang Yugi'
It suppresses and sterilizes harmful germs
and makes healthy dining table. Also, the bowls
of Geochang Yugi contain the essence of health,
including warmth and softness as well as freshness of food.
 
Best materials and best ration
‘Copper 79 and Tin 22’
Once in a 1,500℃ furnace, again in a 1,200℃ crucible.
It recreates ordinary copper and tin as special ingredients.
 
An effort for perfect quality,
It is a promise we have kept for 100 years.
