Cha Urushi Box

by Studio KUKU

A fantastic chestnut tea box that's been handmade in Nagano, Japan by Studio KUKU. Owned by Kyoko Tani, who has used her experience of crafting made-to-order furniture in to a selection of small objects produced with functionality and beauty in mind.

This tea caddy is a special one as it's made from horse chestnut and has a darker urushi finish. The lacquer is applied evenly to protect the wood and make sure it stands the test of time. The precision and skill needed to make this by hand is quite something, both lids fit snugly making sure your tea is kept fresh.

approx measurements: 5.5cm Diameter, 6cm Height
