Description | 詳細

Weighing less than three grams and with a neatly balanced shape, Chikumeidō’s chashaku teascoops are always feather-light and elegant to hold in one’s hand. Comes in a small cardboard box decorated with Japanese washi paper.

Susudake bamboo originates from kitchens and hearths in traditional Japanese homes, where exposure to smoke slowly hardens and darkens the color of the bamboo – a gradual process often lasting for more than a 100 years before being ready to carve into tea utensils. As the number of traditional style houses in Japan are decreasing, susudake bamboo is becoming increasingly rare as well.

Chikumeidō is a traditional family-run bamboo workshop that has been creating bamboo utensils for the Japanese tea ceremony for more than 500 years. Today, Chikumeidō is led by Kubo Sabun, twenty-fourth generation of an unbroken line of master bamboo craftsmen in Takayama, Nara.
