Originally from Japan, they bear the name of Tumi Ishi, which means "stackable stones". This object will amuse both the youngest and the oldest. How high can you stack them? This is a much bigger challenge than with blocks at right angles, and all kinds of elegant and mysterious shapes can be created. They serve the imagination of children, transforming into cargo, rocks in a setting etc.

It is a magnificent object that can be left visible in your living areas, and which will undoubtedly become one of the favorite games of the family and your guests.

Each stone is cut from one of our wood scraps and then carefully sandblasted, one facet at a time freehand, in our workshop in Estrie.

Our wood comes from our scraps (ash) and also those of ash, white oak and black walnut, Quebec-based and eco-responsible furniture manufacturer, whose mission is to enrich your environment, one piece of furniture at a time
