Wakasa Lacquerware Chopsticks Gift Set (Arigatou)
This set includes two pair of chopsticks and two chopstick rest in soft colors with a cherry blossom motif.
These chopsticks have a beautiful matte texture and are easy to hold and thick. The tips of the chopsticks are roughened to make it easier to grip food, even slippery food such as noodles. The chopstick rests have a cute ribbon-shaped design.
These chopsticks are made by Ishida which has been producing Wakasa lacquerware for over 80 years. Wakasa lacquerware is traditionally known as "urushi" in Japan. It is a traditional craft of Obama City, Fukui Prefecture that has been around since the early Edo period and is treasured for its durability and timeless beauty.
The paulownia wood box is decorated with the word "Arigatou" which means "thank you", making it suitable for a gift to express your gratitude to the recipient.
