Two traditional Japanese crafts are brought together for these elegant lidded Japanese teacups — pristine white matte Japanese porcelain and the texture of shibori tie-dyed washi paper.
Each features delicate shibori patterns in lilac and a lid to help keep tea warm.
Made in Arita Prefecture by the Hyakusen Kiln during the mid-century, the technique involved imprinting the texture of washi paper onto porcelain. As far as we know, Hyakusen developed this technique and was the only kiln to make it. Yet, sadly, is no longer in production.
