Made in Japan Wakasa lacquered chopsticks - Set of 2 pairs of chopsticks (Japanese Papers Pattern)
Wakasa lacquer is a fictitious lacquer ware produced in Obama City, Fukui Prefecture, and was an on-site lacquer ware in 1978. Each single one is handmade by craftsman, and each of them is attractive for its soft texture, gentle sparkle, and quality.
The defining elements of Wakasa lacquerware are the creation of patterns with eggshells, seashells, and pine needles and the use of the togidashi maki-e, a technique which is elevation of the pattern through applying multiple layers of lacquer. These features give this craft a unique and composed appearance. It is also prized artistically, unlike various other types of lacquerware that are more appreciated for functionality only.
A gift set that collaborates with two traditional techniques that represent Japan.
A heartfelt gift for family and friends.
