I want to protect the "black dyeing technique" that has been used for more than 60 years since my grandfather's generation.
 
TM Co., Ltd. was founded in 1960 by my grandfather, and has been processing machine parts for more than 60 years, mainly for customers in the local metal processing industry. In Sanjo City, Niigata Prefecture, where small metal processing companies are concentrated, we specialize in black dyeing of metals and parkerizing treatment (anti-corrosion treatment of metals), and are favored by customers nationwide.
 
"Black dyeing of metals" may not be familiar to the general public, but it is a technology that is in high demand in the metalworking industry because it has effects such as preventing rust on iron and steel products and suppressing light reflection. On the other hand, black dyeing requires a high level of technical skill, and there are only a few companies in Japan that specialize in this. We developed this technology in our grandfather's generation and have been protecting it for 60 years.
 
Since I took over this company as the third generation, I have continued to have the desire to pass on the technology of dyeing metal black to future generations and to let the general public know its appeal. In addition, we wanted to create our own brand as a company that specializes in the processing industry, which is the beginning of "96 [KURO]".
 
When I thought about what to make as my own product, I came up with tableware. The reason for this is that black dyeing is a technology that is not harmful to the human body, there are not many tableware on the market that have been dyed black, and we wanted to create a product that would make our technology familiar to ordinary people.
 
In the hope that even in the midst of busy days, people will have time to stop for a moment to touch this warm black, and I thought of creating a product that can be used every day even in ordinary homes.
 
 
 
 
 
 
What are we doing?
Make the color uneven a "texture". Creation of new value in the form of "warm black"
 
A few years ago, in order to meet the needs of the times, we took on the challenge of dyeing stainless steel black in a way that was out of the ordinary. After one and a half years of research, we have perfected our unique stainless steel black dyeing technology.
 
We succeeded in dyeing stainless steel black, but uneven color and dripping inevitably occur. At first, I saw this as a failure and went through trial and error to see if I could do something about it. However, when we changed our mindset and appealed to this as a "texture," it caught the eye of a designer and was adopted as a material for store interiors. At that time, we were convinced that our black dyeing would be accepted as an interior decoration, and we began to move forward with the development of our own products in earnest.
 
I decided to do it, but I didn't know what to do or how to do it, so I went to a course where I could learn about manufacturing. Through the secrets I learned here, I strengthened my desire to develop something that is truly valuable, not something that can be obtained everywhere. I was also able to team up with the art director Takayuki Nishimura Mr./Ms., who I met here, and he was involved in everything from planning to branding.
 
Black dyeing of stainless steel is different from painting in that the metal is dyed black like dyeing a cloth, so a natural color change occurs just like denim. Its natural color change also leads to the enjoyment of using it carefully for a long time. In the process of development, the appeal of the product was steadily increased by adding a new perspective to the existing values.
 
With the support of many people, "96 [KURO]" was born in 2018. When I picked up the finished product for the first time, I was overwhelmed with emotion. I feel that communication between people is more important than anything else in manufacturing. We will continue to carefully convey the commitment and charm of our products, and hope that those who understand them will pick them up.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Commitment to the product
When metal is dyed black, it does not have a uniform texture like paint, such as unevenness, liquid drip marks, and spots called pitting corrosion. That is the beauty with taste that can only be produced by black dyeing, and it becomes a black with a sense of temperature. The charm of black dyeing is not only the texture, but also the preservation of the texture of the metal. This black dyeing is a dyeing technique that does not affect the human body derived from a natural phenomenon from ancient times, and it is also characterized by being a very environmentally friendly treatment.

It has attracted the attention of Mr./Ms. facility buyers who are driving the trend, and has been adopted as a guest room fixture at TRUNK (HOTEL) YOYOGI PARK.
The warm texture that complements the food is popular at restaurants.
It is used as cutlery for a wide range of restaurants, such as yakiniku restaurants in Omotesando, ethnic restaurants in Nagoya, and Japanese sweets shops that have been renovated from old folk houses.
 
Sleeve cups, mugs, and gift packages are packaged in reusable cloth and are also chosen as gifts.
 
Inquiries from overseas customers are increasing, and it is currently handled on the American e-commerce site "bonten". The site is operated under the concept that "the mindset of Japan's craftsmanship and culture will contribute to solving environmental problems caused by mass production and mass consumption," and the position and direction of the 96 [KURO] brand have become even clearer.
 
In addition, it is handled on an e-commerce site that handles made-in-Japan miscellaneous goods in Hong Kong, and at an exhibition held in Taiwan, it was highly evaluated as a high-quality Japan product with a sense of trend.
