Kappamaki Sushi Tatami Coaster


In Japanese folklore, bodies of water are often populated by slithery and murderous river imps called Kappa. When not drowning weary travellers or sumo wrestling, Kappa love to eat cucumbers! And so, kappa maki got their name.

These coasters are woven from 'igusa' rush grass typically used to make tatami mats, and known for its durability and subtle fresh and grassy scent.

Produced by a traditional embroidery atelier in Kyoto.

10 cm x 10 cm.
