Shinafu - Zelkova Cup

“Shinafu” in an archaic word, meaning “elegantly hanging.” The shapes of SINAFU's bowls and dishes were designed to reflect the traditional shapes and spirit of hospitality of Yamanaka Hot Spring, which has been welcoming visitors and passing on the techniques of wood turning since the time that Nara was the capital of Japan in the 700s. SINAFU does not only express warm hospitality with beautiful arrangements on bowls and dishes, but also literally makes your hands movements look more graceful.
