With its slightly widened rim, the Nodate One was conceptualized as a tea bowl for making tea in the great outdoors, but it is also ideal for serving soup, cereal, or other dishes. Made in the tradition of fuki urushi whereby Japanese lacquer is repeatedly painted and wiped off to highlight the grain, the Nodate Mug is a fine example of lacquerware from Aizu, Japan. One can feel the texture of the wood as well as the warmth emanating from this refined piece. The strap is made from water-resistant elk leather, so the cup can be washed as-is. In addition, wooden lacquer ware is light and antibacterial. Use the leather strap to attach this sturdy mug to the outside of your backpack. Tote it along to a picnic or on a thrilling outdoor adventure.
Nodate Lacquerware has long been viewed as a luxury item, but we invite you to challenge this perception by enjoying Nodate products in a casual, outdoor setting. Employing the techniques of Aizu lacquerware, a traditional art that began in the latter half of the 16th century in the Aizu region of Fukushima Prefecture, each Nodate piece is meticulously handmade by skilled lacquer artisans and woodturners utilizing meticulously chosen, solid blocks of natural wood.
