*This is a special order model that is only available at FOOD FOR THOUGHT!
Ojiro Kakumono Shop is very popular for its precision craftsmanship and gentle touch.
This is a very valuable FOOD FOR THOUGHT bespoke model specially ordered by director Yuko Watanabe. Of course, it is only available at our shop, and it is a work that takes time and effort because only a small amount can be produced throughout the year. Mr. and Mrs. Ojiro make everything by themselves from scratch, from making higo to bending, from local Oita white bamboo. That's why it's really beautiful and I'm very happy to have it in my hand.
We live in a world like this. At FOOD FOR THOUGHT, we believe in proposing a lifestyle where you and your loved ones only have things around them that make you feel truly comfortable so that you and your loved ones can live a fulfilling life. Works made by people, for people, using natural materials. It is a gem that embodies this goal of ours.
In fact, this size is based on the image of a “portable weight” that is familiar to us.
Please see the second photo.
The inside has a two-tiered structure that is easy to use. Since it is made of bamboo, it is naturally light and easy to carry. The handle is delicate yet comfortable to hold, and the mechanical balance is perfect when lifted. I think it's an ideal basket that has no flaws and yet has a calm appearance.
It's good for outdoor tea ceremony with a bowl and utensils.
For the time when we can all be patient and enjoy it again someday.
It's hard to go out, so pick up something that you think is really nice for the bare minimum of going out. It's a picture just by leaving it, and some advanced users use it for picking flowers and arranging flowers as storage for their favorite vessels. Square can be used for any purpose. Feel free to enjoy it.
No special care is required. Using is the best maintenance of wooden products.
It is a very valuable work because it is all handmade and cannot be made in numbers. It is a gem that you want to keep as a family heirloom.
