"Everyday bowl" familiar to everyday table,

"Bronze bowl" which brand SONOBE which handles woodwork and lacquerware which are traditional industries of Odawara received the Good Design Award in 1996. Meitobu (precious trees) means wood with appreciation value. Round shape with round shape and bowl with grain of wood are rustic and warm. It is familiar to the hands and combines the beauty of appearance and ease of use. It is a masterpiece produced over time by numerous processes by the hands of craftsmen. Materials are available from Japan, Sakura, and Keyaki. Because it is a natural material, the color of the wood grain and the skin color are not the same and everything is one point. ※ Because we are using natural wood, color, texture changes one by one. Also, due to handmade products some errors will occur in size. Please note. I hope you enjoy the merit of one thing.
