Rain Chains have endured and evolved in shape and form since they were first introduced in Japan hundreds of years ago. They were used to transport rain water from temple roof tops to ground level and stored in large barrels and containers for further reuse. In today’s world it is smart to be water wise and make good decisions to support the environment. Take a look at our assorted line of styles consisting of medium, large, and X-large cup styles as well as a selection of link styles that accommodate the tastes of our expanding list of clients. Pick a style most suitable to the architecture of your home and amount of rainfall in your area. Link styles allow for a pure visual pleasure where the movement of running water can be seen and heard as it moves rhythmically down the length of the chain, creating a sense of harmony which lends itself to your home environment.
We draw inspiration from nature's flora and the beautiful detailed etching and embellishing on each cup profiles assorted floral shapes which appeal to most of our clients. For those whose tastes veer towards contemporary styling we have a vast selection ranging from the pure copper bell cup to the heirloom cup and the tara cup style. These are very popular amongst the avantgarde who do not adhere to traditional concepts but are happy to experiment .
