Hakuhodo Chopstick Rest Piece, Shippou

$ 16.00

Carefully selected from Japan - Chopstick rests are perfect for using at home or giving as a special gift for a friend. 

These metal pieces are from a company called Hakuhodo. They are from the city of Takaoka in the Toyama Prefecture. Toyama and Oregon are sister states. 

Shippou refers to the seven treasures of Buddhism: gold, silver, lapis lazuli, agate, seashell, amber, and coral. All of these are found on the Asian continent and were precious and rare products. Shippo also means "cloisonné," which refers to a decorating technique using metal strips and gems. The pattern represents these beautiful seven treasures inlaid in metal, in an infinitely repeating pattern.
