Sakura Desk Organiser
A beautiful pen holder hand crafted in Kakunodate, a former samurai town in today’s Akita Prefecture, famous for its samurai traditions and hundreds of weeping cherry trees.
It’s a stunning example of kabazaiku (樺細工), the traditional Japanese art of fashioning woodworks out of the bark of a cherry tree, which began as a secondary vocation for samurai in the town over 200 years ago. These skills and techniques have been passed on artisan to artisan through the generations.
This pen pot features maple and sakura leaves fashioned out of Japanese wingnut and applied to a cherry bark surface.
With an interior felt lining. Comes gift boxed.
Measures approx. 10cm tall. Wipe clean with a soft dry cloth.
Presented wrapped in a gift box and tissue paper.
