Komon Mubyo Chopstick Set


This item is currently out of stock

A pair of chopsticks and rest individually handmade by craftsmen at Hyozaemon, Japan. Each set is made from wood and only natural lacquers, meaning they’re safe for everyone to use to eat.

Hyozaemon chopsticks were presented as Japan’s gift to world leaders at the 42nd G7 summit, if you’re into that kinda thing.

This set features the six gourds or ‘komon mubyo’. With repeating patterns, they represent good health and longevity, whilst the chopstick rest with its auspicious uroko pattern is said to ward off bad luck. They’re not heavily polished, to allow for a good grip.

For longevity we recommend hand washing only. The chopsticks measure approx 22cm long.

Gift wrapped in tissue paper
