Art of the table

Japanese tableware is much more than just tableware in Japan. Fine and refined, they can sometimes be like real works of art. Japanese ceramics is an ancestral art form and has above all an aesthetic utility. Our store offers you Japanese plates and ceramic bowls, of all sizes and different colors, to offer you an elegant Japanese dinner service. Of course, how can we talk about Japanese utensils without mentioning the famous Japanese chopsticks? You will find all kinds of Japanese chopsticks, from simple wooden chopsticks to luxury Japanese chopsticks decorated with Japanese motifs. Finally, for all those who wish to avoid the office cafeteria or the fast-food restaurant at lunchtime, our selection of stainless steel or traditional bento boxes offers you the possibility to eat healthy and balanced food even outside your home.

Chopsticks

Nearly a third of the world's population eats with chopsticks. Chopsticks are not only used to pick up food. Cutting, pinching, mixing, rolling, pressing, draining, separating, the gestures that can be performed are very varied.In Japanese gastronomy, washoku in Japanese - which was listed as an intangible cultural heritage of humanity by UNESCO in 2013 - only hashi are used, even to taste a soup. Washoku and hashi are inseparable.Almost all hashi are made of wood or bamboo in Japan. In Southeast Asian countries where chopsticks are used, they can be made of metal, ivory or plastic.

Bento Box

A bento is a quick meal contained in a box. This small box, almost always compartmentalized, is simply used to present and take away lunch, as much for children who don't always have a school canteen as for adults for a quick lunch break at their workplace. Japanese bento boxes are almost always home-made and show a lot of inventiveness, to be as pleasing to the eyes as to the taste buds.Bento boxes are becoming more and more popular outside Japan. Thanks to their small size, bentos allow for balanced meals and portion control for those who are watching their weight. Moreover, there are very original bento shapes that change from the classic transparent boxes.The home-made boxes are usually wrapped with a furoshiki, a piece of cloth that surrounds the box to insulate it thermally and tied above it, making it easier to carry.

Decoration

Japanese interior design is above all an art of living. The key words of Japanese decoration are sobriety and minimalism. Although the decoration elements must remain simple and practical in their form, the Japanese decoration knows how to grant a little fantasy in the patterns. The most common and stylized Japanese patterns are cherry blossoms, birds, fishes or the trendy seigaiha pattern which means "wave of the blue sea". Thus, you will find in our store a selection of Japanese cushions, simple in their shape and original in their patterns.
