These Japanese reusable chopsticks feature stunning Kutani color patterns and motifs on Wakasa lacquerware chopsticks. The top ends of the chopsticks are colored in an elegant vermillion red hue.
The Kutani color designs on the chopsticks are created through an exquisite fusion of traditional patterns with modern sensibilities. Seikou Kiln, a renowned kiln of Kutani ware, beautifully combines the charm of Kutani color designs with the elegance of Wakasa lacquerware chopsticks.
Wakasa lacquerware chopsticks are manufactured in Obama, Fukui. Wakasa lacquerware chopsticks are also well-known for their high resistance to heat and water. One of the remarkable characteristics of Wakasa lacquerware products is that each piece is distinctly crafted by skilled craftpersons.
These chopsticks are an excellent addition to a tabletop for daily meals and special occasions. We highly recommend matching these chopsticks with other Kutani ware items such as chopstick rests, coasters and small plates for designing a unified table setting and a welcoming atmosphere.
