Beautiful little sake cups hand turned from Thujopsis Dolabrata, a cedar native to Aomori Prefecture in Northern Japan. Hiba contains moisture repelling oils that prevent nasty bacteria, and add a divine smell that gradually fades over time. Set of two.
There’s something comforting about drinking from a wooden cup, especially Hiba cedar wood, and even more so when you’ve met the man who makes them - lovely, grinning, chaotic, covered-in -wood-shavings, Sekikawa san. Sekikawa san, 2nd generation woodworker, has been making tool handles and household items for over 25 years. He makes the handles for our pruning saws, as well as our Sake Cups and Chopping Boards.
