Handcrafted With Precious Materials
The materials used are gold, silver, colored foil, platinum foil, mother-of-pearl foil, etc. applied to the wood with a variety of techniques to obtain different effects and create unique designs. For the autumn chopsticks, “aged foils”, silver leaves that were stored by the previous generation for posterity, that underwent chemical changes and whose colors slowly naturally changed over the years, were used! These are precious, with a unique brilliance, and will make you experience the Japanese “wabi-sabi”!
