This Bamboo cup has been produced in Oita prefecture, which is the largest producer of TAKE bamboo in Japan. High-quality bamboo crafts have been created from the past in Beppu city, Oita prefecture and they were designated as Traditional Crafts by the Minister for Economy, Trade and Industry in 1979.
Since ancient times, bamboo has played a central role in people's lives in Japan. Bamboo makes a very versatile material since it is so light, strong and easy to work. TAKE bamboo is traditionally regarded as auspicious, similar to MATSU pine or UME plum in Japan.
Skilled craftsmen carefully and meticulously create each Yunomi by hand. Therefore, there are natural variations in each piece. You will enjoy each unique work and texture of TAKE bamboo.
