These strikingly beautiful bamboo chopsticks are finished with highly prized Japanese lacquer (or urushi), a natural material derived from trees that have been used for this purpose for thousands of years. A four-sided shape prevents the chopsticks from rolling on flat surfaces and offers more purchase in the hand when gripping and picking up food.
Materials: Bamboo, polyurethane, Japanese lacquer
Dimensions: Length: 9”
Care: Hand wash gently and air dry. Do not put in dishwasher.
Founded in 1963 in Kumamoto Prefecture, Yamachiku is known throughout Japan for their thoughtfully designed chopsticks. At every stage of the production process - from forestry to packaging - Yamachiku relies on the expertise of skilled artisans who turn locally harvested Moso bamboo into colorful tableware. In addition to its role as a traditional material for chopsticks, this bamboo is a sustainable and renewable resource, owing to its fast growth and abundance in the Kumamoto region.
