Two pairs of wooden chopsticks with striped ends, two ceramic daruma rests, packaged in a paulownia wooden box.

The daruma rests are Mino ware, a style of Japanese ceramics with more than 1,300 years history, made around the towns of Toki and Minokamo in Gifu Prefecture. They come in a white and read pair.

The chopsticks are natural wood with food safe polyurethane coating. They come in two designs and sizes:

  • Blue and white striped chopsticks: 22.5cm

Packaged in a wooden box, this is an ideal gift for any occasion.

-------------------------

KAWAI was founded in 1943 as a chopsticks manufacturer in Obama City, Fukui prefecture, a region with a 400 year old history of making lacquer coated chopsticks. The lacquerware known as "wakasa nuri" is very time consuming, and comprises 18 steps, traditionally performed by one craftsperson. KAWAI builds on this tradition to offer chopsticks in traditional and modern styles and to enhance the reputation of chopsticks from Obama region.
