A Japanese brand with a focus on all things coffee and drinkware, River's Drinkware products include those for specialty coffee as much as outdoor activities and everyday life. Minimal design yet surprisingly functional, Rivers have gained widespread support from campers, coffee geeks, and many others.
From their base in Tokyo, Rivers Drinkware epitomises the Japanese design philosophy of combining understated quality with simple, effective functionality. The company was established back in 2000 by two people with the same ideas in mind – 'To propose new lifestyles and culture to people, and create new things that people will use with affection in their daily lives.' Since then, the brand has gone from strength to strength, creating products that aren’t only unique in appearance, but unique in the way that they function too.
Coffee shop owners are under mounting pressure to do more to decrease the number of disposable coffee cups ending up on landfill sites. As such, brands like Rivers Drinkware are experimenting with ways that they can help, too, by offering sustainable, durable and versatile vessels that can be reused again and again.
