AOLA - Cedar Wood Chopstick Set
This product exhibits a rich blue that still allows the natural surface grain of the cedar wood to be visible, unlike painted wood. These chopsticks are lightweight but strong enough to use with any meal.
Founded in Tokushima Prefecture, Japan’s biggest domestic producer of the natural indigo dye ‘Ai’ (known as Japan Blue), AOLA has developed new techniques to bring out the best of this traditional dye. Their products exhibit a rich blue that still visibly maintains the natural surface grain of the wood, unlike traditionally painted wood. Due to the nature of the process, each piece is unique in terms of the depth of colour achieved.
