AKUBE BOWL

Price per bowl

Hand crafted by a small atelier of 12 artisans in the city of Enchizen, each wooden bowl is hand painted with the best lacquer of Fukui prefecture.

It is said that 1,500 years ago, the artisans of Echizen repaired the 26th emperor’s crown using lacquer made from the sap of the Urushi tree and presented him with a traditional handmade bowl. Their work was of such excellence that it deeply impressed the emperor and he ordered the artisans to spread their craft throughout the country. This made Echizen one of the oldest production districts in Japan.

Laquered in red, black or beige, these traditional bowls can be used daily for your breakfast, lunch or any dessert. Very resistant, they can be machine washed.

Material: laquer
Dimensions: ø16.5cm x H5.5cm
