These chopsticks and chopstick rests were handmade by well-experienced Japanese craftspeople.
A box contains 2 chopstick rests and 2 pairs of chopsticks. The dark colored ones contained in the left side of the box are made of ebony tree, and the other ones in the right side are made of purple heart tree.
Ebony chopsticks are a little longer than purple heart ones as these are intended to be used especially by husband and wife.
In Japanese they are called “meoto-bashi (夫婦箸),” which means “2 pairs of chopsticks for husband and wife.”
We have 2 designs available, Japanese maple leaves and cherry blossoms, which are beautifully expressed by the outstanding Japanese traditional technique of inlaid work using shells.
The craftspeople carved the surface of wood very delicately into the shapes of the blossoms and leaves, and then they inlaid shells into the wood.
We also have "Ebony & Purple Heart Japanese Maple Leaves" is available.
FYI in the attached pictures, the words written on the papers around the chopsticks read "handmade inlay chopsticks" in Japanese, and the sticker in the left says "cloudy ebony."
We hope these items will make your dining even more fun and happier!
