In 2017, KURO-Bō was launched by Darrin & Camilla Morrisby, with each KURO-Bō Binchotan Stick and Kōin being produced by hand using the heritage-infused Japanese process.

Darrin & Camilla first discovered Binchotan and its incredible ability to filter water back in 2008 when living in the UK and regularly buying plastic water filter jugs and bottled water. They became concerned about the cost, environmental impact and the fact that the water was often stripped of everything – good and bad. They researched plastic-free alternatives and discovered Binchotan. Once they adjusted to this simple process and rhythm, it became part of their daily life. Not long after, their friends and family, from teenagers to grandparents, followed suit.

When Darrin & Camilla left corporate life behind and moved to South Africa in 2015, they knew they wanted to do something completely different – something for the future of their family, country and the planet - something much bigger and more impactful than what they were doing before. In Cape Town they found the same water challenges as in the UK. After conducting research, they grasped the real potential of offering Binchotan in Africa. Introducing a 100% natural and more affordable water filter to South Africa seemed like the perfect fit. In 2016 they began laboratory-testing and in 2017 launched KURO-Bō.
