History:
Originating in Kyoto, Kohchosai Kosuga is a fifth-generation atelier that combines traditional bamboo shaping techniques and contemporary design concepts. The bamboo used in Kohchosai Kosuga products are of the Madake and Mousouchiku varieties. Carefully crafted by skilled hands using bamboo sourced from the mountains of Hyogo, Nara and Kyoto known for their incredibly strong and durable bamboo reeds. No preservatives or chemicals are used in the harvesting or making of these pieces and the procuring and drying of each bamboo piece is a long process. The bamboo is harvested between the cold winter months of November to February. When it gets warmer in March, the oil from the bamboo is removed through steaming in a special kiln. After that, it is hung to dry in the sun for over one month.

 

Materials:
Bamboo and clear varnish

Variation:
Made of bamboo, each spoon will vary slightly and will patina gradually over time.

Care Instructions:
Hand wash only and dry immediately.  Do not leave wet.  Spoon will change color over time, but may absorb some color from strongly colored foods.
