Rivers is a Japanese brand with a focus on all things coffee and drinkware. With products from specialty coffee items, outdoor activity related products, to everyday staples like mugs and cups - all products designed to make your everyday life a tiny bit better. The Rivers product design is minimal yet surprisingly functional, which as a result gained widespread support from campers, coffee geeks, and many others.
At one time, back before it was christened Rivers, the company imported and exported products that ranged from household goods to heavy machinery. It wasn’t until the company’s founders stumbled upon a beautiful and functional “Wallmug” tumbler that they were struck with the inspiration that brought about their current brand.
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 company has gone from strength to strength, creating products that aren’t only unique in appearance, but unique in the way that they function too.
With coffee shop owners under mounting pressure to do more to decrease the number of disposable coffee cups ending up on landfill sites, manufacturing companies are experimenting with ways that they can help too. Rivers Drinkware is one of them, by creating sustainable, durable and versatile vessels that can be reused again and again.
WHY RIVERS DRINKWARE?
Whether it’s coffee, tea or cold brew, Rivers creates products for both hot and cold beverages from coffee presses that don’t require a filter (reducing waste) to slim and lightweight water bottles that won’t take up much space in your bag. Each product is recyclable and therefore a perfect environmentally friendly alternative to your regular paper and plastic coffee cups.
