Tradition and beauty meet function with this striking porcelain Japanese bowl gift set. Featuring a classic blue and white karakusa design, this set of five intricate and ornate bowls makes a stylish and functional addition to any kitchen or interior display.

Karakusa, meaning "foreign" or "winding plant" in Japanese, is an historical style of arabesque design imported from China around the 7th century. Thought to have originated in ancient Egypt, the motif is often characterized by interlocking and swirling patterns or shapes.

Among the most common forms of karakusa are floral or botanical designs, like plum and chrysanthemum blossoms, as well as vine, bamboo and wisteria patterns. Other widely used karakusa themes include fans and decorative lines.

The centuries-old tradition of karakusa decoration continues to be enjoyed in Japan, and in other parts of the world. Tableware, wall hangings and textiles are examples of everyday items typically adorned with the karakusa motif.

Now you can admire the beauty of five distinct karakusa patterns with this charming and versatile Japanese bowl gift set. Each set includes Japanes-crafted porcelain bowls that feature timeless karakusa designs, including: chrysanthemum, or "kiku," karakusa; fan-shaped karakusa; peony, or "botan," karakusa; cherry blossom, or "sakura," karakusa.

These medium-sized bowls are just the right size for popular Asian noodle dishes like udon or ramen, or for pasta favorites like spaghetti. And their microwave and dishwasher-safe material makes them easy-to-use for students, families or busy professionals.

If you're looking for a delightful housewarming, birthday or graduation present, you'll also enjoy the convenience of receiving each set of five bowls in a secure and decorative paper gift box.

    These bowls are beautiful. Larger than I thought they would be, but I still like them very much. Would like something in between this size and a rice bowl size. However one bowl has a faded spot inside on the glaze about as big as a thumb print, but not bad enough to take the time to return it. I do hope they hold up in the dishwasher. These are packaged in a nice box to be given as a gift. I will buy more from Mrs. Lin's Kitchen. I love blue and white ceramic and porcelain, It's in almost every room of my house. Glad I found you.
    ProsBeautiful, functional
