Kitchen tools with the warmth of nature and handiwork
Traditional life in Kyoto always respects and cherishes the careful works of craftsmanship, which probably arises from the philosophy of tea ceremony and flower arrangement. Kyoto Sanjo Takematsu is full of excellent works by Kyoto’s experienced craftsmen. What they offer, particularly, is beautiful kitchen tools. Trays and strainer with lids are made from a special bamboo weaving technique called Tatami-ami which requires high experience and technique. With their soft feel in your hand and functionality in draining water from food they will make a perfect everyday tool in your kitchen. It fits in the Western style display and usage, too. The photo is of the bamboo strainer with lid (12,600 yen).
