Intended to resemble the beautiful depths of the Wakasa Bay off the Sea of Japan, Wakasa-nuri style lacquerware originated centuries ago in the Edo period of Japan. Wakasa lacquerware is typically made through seashell patterns which form very unique designs, and these chopsticks are a great example of this with circular patterns of vibrant colors! With a red, wide body made from quality high-grain wood, these made-in-Japan handmade chopsticks are coated in Wakasa style lacquer that is resilient and smooth to the touch.
Dining on sushi or other food from the sea, knowing the meaning behind these Wakasa patterns adds an element of wonder to every meal. Pairing excellently with any of our sushi plate sets
, this set of chopsticks would also look especially great matching tones with a red chrysanthemum bento box
for meals on the go. Pair these with a beautiful or playful ceramic chopstick rest
for your own table or for a unique gift to friends and family.
An enchanting labor intensive work of art, this pair of handmade Japanese lacquered chopsticks makes for a unique gift idea. Ships in plastic bag. Hand washing is recommended.
