A tea cannister that combines 2 traditional crafts of Akita Prefecture - Kabazaiku and Odate Magewappa.
The 2 color composition of cherry tree bark and Akita cedar creates a beautiful contrast, while at the same time brings out a unique Kabazaiku appearance.
The double-layered structure, which looks like the cherry tree bark is wrapped around at a diagonal angle to create a definite step between the body & lid, brings this a shape and sense of unity not found in conventional tea canisters.
The elliptical shape that fits nicely into your hand is another one of its charms.
※Kabazaiku is made using yamazakura bark (cerasus jamasakura), not birch ("kaba" in Japanese).
