Mostly known for its mountains, Toyama Prefecture on the west side of the island of Honshu also has a very active metalworking industry going back four centuries, centering on the city of Takaoka. Founded in 1916, Nousaku has been part of this tradition for over a hundred years and specializes in creating objects used for Buddhist rituals. But they also do amazing things using pure, 100% tin and the Nousaku Tin Crafted Flower Chopstick Rests is one exquisite example of this!
The Nousaku Tin Crafted Flower Chopstick Rests is made of five 4 x 42 mm (0.2 x 1.6") pieces, each shaped like a very characteristic Japanese flower: you get, of course, a cherry blossom and a plum, but also a Chinese bellflower, a cosmos, and even a lotus. Make your next Japan-themed dinner party special with this elegant combination of classic craftsmanship and contemporary design!
