Chopsticks, Japanese Cypress
Handmade from hinoki (Japanese cypress), these chopsticks are incredibly light and durable. Delicately coated in a lovely vermillion lacquer. Because these chopsticks are so lightweight, they are excellent for beginners, teaching children, or for a very comfortable ease of use for guests at your next dinner party.
- About SyuRo
SyuRo in Japanese means Palm Tree, having leaves that spread wide open just like welcoming hands. Hands that are gentle and generous, which is the driving concept behind SyuRo and their craftsmanship—the traditional Japanese monozukuri. Masuko Unayama launched SyuRo in 2006 and opened a shop at Torigoe, Taito-ku, in Tokyo - old Edo's Shitamachi. This old downtown is an area filled with classic typesetters, canning factories, cloth wholesalers, hardware stores, and many small family-run factories engaged in meticulous monozukuri. Artisans and their arts, cultivated over many years, remain alive there where traditional craft is practiced and passed down. All SyuRo products, from tea canisters to chopsticks, are produced on an extremely small scale, with these traditional methods.
