Designed by the Good Liver and made in collaboration with artisans in Nagaokakyo City in Kyoto, this special set of bamboo chopsticks is exclusively available at the store. They are accompanied by an elegant bamboo chopstick holder that doubles as a chopstick rest when in use.
Bamboo is 1.5 - 2 times stronger than ordinary untreated wood, which gives it the potential for a wide variety of uses. Despite this, it was only used for building materials until the Muromachi and Momoyama periods of Japan, when craftsmen began to fashion bamboo utensils. Not all types of bamboo are equal — these chopsticks are made from some of the most precious bamboo in Kyoto, making them light, easy to handle, and durable.
Holder: D 1.5cm x L 6.5cm
