Description:
Hand-carved in Kyoto, these shapely shoehorns are made of bamboo. These shoehorns make use of the springy, lightweight qualities of bamboo, while showing off the warm tone and unique pattern of the wood. Use as a tool in your daily routine or hang on your wall to be admired. 

Variation:
Each piece is made from natural bamboo strips and features unique variations.

History: 
Since its establishment in 1890, the Kohchosai Kosuga company has been dedicated to exploring the qualities of bamboo at their workshops and facilities. Kohchosai Kosuga specialized in fine bamboo arts and crafts and produces a wide range of products, such as flower baskets, tableware, bags, and lighting. The craftspeople at Kosuga are true innovators of the medium - shepherding bamboo into contemporary culture that extends well beyond Japan while using traditional techniques passed down through 5 generations.
