karmi tea canisters

Having seen too many metallic tea canisters and this is a breadth of fresh air and oh-so-beautifully crafted. By Shoshen lacquerware from Yamanka.

The origin of Yamanka ware dates as far back to the Azuchi–Momoyama period (1568–1600). During this time, craftsmen developed their wood curving techniques that has now become distinguishing features of Yamanka lacquer ware. Shoshen lacquer ware respects the beautiful grain of natural wood and perfect base work. They intentionally don’t overpaint the wood in order expose the beautiful grain. It takes over a year to produce these beautiful artisan pieces.
