Originating in Kyoto, this eighth-generation atelier combines traditional shaping techniques with modern design concepts. The bamboo, which is locally sourced in the outskirts of Kyoto is light-weight and sturdy.
Okyaku-bashi’s simple design is very inviting and a fun item to use at the dining table. The chopsticks, which come in a set of ten are great for any occasion when you have many guests and you can reuse them.
The design of the paper wrapping the set change according to the season. Currently, Rabbit (for fall to winter), and Boar (zodiac of the year 2019!) are available.
