These Burgundy Fancy Japanese Chopsticks are a work of art. The pattern is a detailed spiral that matches the natural grain of the wood from which these Japanese chopsticks are made. The pattern also shows the technique behind making these chopsticks. An artisan applies layer after layer of lacquer finish to each chopstick, then carefully strips away the finish to reveal the layers. Throughout this intricate, natural pattern are vibrant colors that range from burgundy to bright red. Hints of natural wood are visible beneath the glossy finish on these Fancy Japanese Chopsticks.
The shape and finish on the chopsticks ensures that your guests dine in style. These Fancy Japanese Chopsticks are evenly tapered from one end to the other and come to a rounded tip where you grip your food. The lacquer glistens, but is evenly applied across this set of chopsticks for a look and feel that is sophisticated, but not overdone.
Crafted in the Wakasa tradition, these fancy Japanese chopsticks can take a year to create. The lacquerware is applied in a process dating back to the 17th century and ingrained in Japanese tradition. Other Wakasa Nuri chopsticks, such as those in black
and earth tones
, are made with the same precision and time commitment. The result is cultured, lustrous lacquered chopsticks that fit effortlessly into your hands.
