The wood used for this tea canister has been cut with a technique unique to Hatashikki called “vertical cutting.” Cutting the wood vertically is to cut across the grain, resulting in a nicely textured feel and an attractive appearance. In addition, vertical cutting makes the wood less deformable and more shock absorbent than wood that has been cut using the more common horizontal cutting method.

Materials Elm Wood, Urethane coating

Care Not dishwasher or microwave safe
