Made from wild cherry tree bark, this tea scoop by Denshiro will enliven your table with its lovely pattern and the gorgeous sheen that is unique to cherry tree bark.
Denshiro is the brand produced by Fujiki Denshiro Shoten, a company that has been practicing kabazaiku in the town of Kakunodatemachi in Akita Prefecture since its establishment in 1851. Kabazaiku is a traditional art of making items using cherry tree bark. Only the bark is harvested from a tree's trunk so that it can regrow. The harvested bark is then thoroughly dried for 2 years before processing.
Raw cherry tree bark has a gray color and a granular surface. Once the raw bark has been scraped, the reddish-brown layer beneath is revealed. This layer is polished for increased luster, creating cherry tree bark’s characteristic color and sheen. A craftsman repeatedly scrapes and polishes each and every piece of bark, which will then be used in various products.
