Painstakingly crafted cups with Kyoto shibori patterns

This wooden cup has a design of “Hikita-kanoko,” one of the tie-dyeing patterns. Kyo shibori is a dyeing technique in which cloth is bound with thread and dyed, and the bound area is left white without being dyed to express the pattern.

Although the design is very detailed, the shading of the dye that appears on the cloth is beautifully reproduced by the carving technique. The warmth of the wood matches the traditional pattern, creating a cup full of character.

The Kyo shibori pattern is arranged on the entire side of the cup, but no matter where you look, you will find no pattern irregularities or breaks, and all the patterns are neatly lined up and connected. This is because the technique used to sew kimono fabrics together to make the patterns appear to be connected is also applied to the cups.

The carving is meticulously calculated and then engraved without gaps using the advanced technology of laser processing. The products are new and unprecedented, but at the same time, you can feel the creator's desire to create high quality products while preserving tradition.

The cup is characterized by the fact that no coating has been added to the wood to show the beauty of the grain. This item is a must for those who love the texture of wood itself.

Moderate capacity and light weight for easy use

The material of the cup is zelkova. It is one of the high-grade woods that have been used for building materials and furniture materials since ancient times. It is said to be difficult to process due to its hardness, but its strength is a great advantage when used as tableware.

The capacity is approximately 8.45 oz(250ml), a generous capacity for a teacup and a typical size for a glass. Weighing only about 0.15 lbs (70g), it is lightweight and perfect for people who do not like the weight of ceramic or glass cups. Another key point is that it is hard to break even if dropped.

The cup itself has a gently curved shape that fits comfortably in the hand. The tie-dyed pattern also prevents the cup from slipping, making it not only beautiful to look at but also easy to use.

The cups are not only Hikita-kanoko designs, but also gorgeous ones with chrysanthemum motifs. Since the impression of the cups varies depending on the color of the lacquer, it is recommended to have several cups with different designs and colors. They will be useful for family dinners and for entertaining guests.
