Tsumugi Hand-Turned Wooden Bowl (Hisago)
The Art of the Bowl
Tsumugi bowls are designed to follow traditional Japanese food culture that has been preserved through generations. These wooden bowls are hand-turned from Japanese Zelkova wood, which is prized for its quality and grain.
Each bowl from the Tsumugi collection takes after a traditional Japanese shape. This one was inspired by hisago, the shape of a gourd. Gourds are a symbol of happiness and health because they traditionally were used for storing medicine.
