  • Wooden Tea Leaf Box

Yamanakarmika lacquerware has a history stretching back over 450 years, when wood turners first moved to Kaga, Ishikawa prefecture,(western Japan). The techniques they brought with them developed into the lacquerware industry which is still flourishing in and around the hot spring resort of Yamanaka onsen.

Stunning and deceptively simple, the Karmi tea canister, made in the century’s old Yamanaka tradition, can take over a year to complete. Craftsmen carve each groove in the cherry birch by hand; each piece is carefully dried over several months.
