OIMU - Air Incense Sticks, FAMILY
OIMU is a Seoul-based design studio, whose projects reinterpret forgotten cultural values and traditions.
OIMU incense sticks are handmade from wood flour, elm-barks, corn starches, pine resin and fragrance oil. Through a labour-intensive process harnessing traditional Korean techniques, skilled craftsman knead the raw natural materials and extract the dough elaborately by hand before air drying it in the wind over several months.
'Family' contains all four kinds of OIMU scents: sandalwood, citrus peel, fig and hazelnut. Five of each fragrance; twenty sticks total. The eco-friendly package is made from waste paper, with beautiful hot-foil gold stamping.
