About Niwaki

Niwaki means garden tree. Not very exciting, but it implies far more than that. Japanese gardens are landscapes, microcosms of nature, and the trees are all shaped to fit into those landscapes – there’s an awful lot of artistry and cultural baggage in there too. Founded by an English sculptor, Niwaki specifically create garden tools and scissors that are made to last, based on their experience of ten-year-old still beautiful Japanese-forged shears.
