During the Tanabata summertime festival, also known as the Star Festival, a stray cat wandered into a pottery studio in Mino, Japan. The potters named her “Tanabata” and with her friends she became the beloved pottery-cat and subject of this set of plates.

These porcelain plates have been dyed using the traditional sometsuke technique. They’re mamezara-sized, literally a ‘bean plate’, a key part of everyday dining in Japan. Use for soy sauce, condiments, grated ginger or as a chopstick rest.

A set of five plates presented in a special wooden case.


Each plate measures approx. 9cm across. Dishwasher safe but for longevity hand wash.

Gift wrapped in tissue paper
