These chopsticks are just the thing to brighten up a gloomy day. Bursting with color and flower imagery, they are a delight to use, not to mention practical (they're dishwasher safe!). Wakasa ware like this, deriving from Ao Suba Kiln in Obama City, Fukui Prefecture, is the result of 350 years of tradition. Interestingly, the craftspeople who produced these chopsticks are responsible for the production from start to finish, rather than specializing in a single aspect of the process. Now that takes skill!

Product details

While Wakasa ware refers to the traditional craft of lacquerware, Kutani ware refers to the lavish colors and designs painted on these chopsticks. Kutani ware derives from the ancient Kaga Province in what is now Ishikawa Prefecture, which borders Fukui Prefecture, where Wakasa ware derives. As you can see, a collaboration of styles just makes sense!

Available in three designs:
  • Plum Chrysanthemum (red)
  • Sakura (blue)
  • Peony (white)
Materials: Natural wood with polyester urethane glaze.
Made in Japan.

Dishwasher OK.
Do not microwave.
Cease use if lacquer cracks.
