“pocket onsen” by bartokdesign

In this video I explain the purpose of my Indiegogo campaign. I have been exporting japanese wooden bathtubs for over 10 years. With this project I aim at creating an opportunity for the wider public to experience the relaxing aroma and curative properties of hinoki. In broader scope of this project is to contribute to diffuse the “ofuro” culture. Soaking in hot water is purifying and energizing.
There is no point in being strong and cool if you are not clean. This is the message I would like you to experience with your 5 senses and … with the help of hinoki wood.


making of japanese ofuro bathtubs

This unique video shows in detail how a japanese wooden bathtub is made and the details that make it waterproof without the use of sealers or other chemicals. Bartok design tubs are made by skilled carpenters among whom is 3rd generation ofuro craftsman Mr. Wada and his son (they only make ofuros, no other carpentry work)
