Blending traditional beauty with contemporary designs and patterns, Washi Tea Canisters are hand-wrapped in traditional Japanese washi paper. Washi paper is made from bark of small trees found in Japan and have a soft, comforting texture. Many patterns, colors and sizes can be combined to create a specially unique look. The canisters are hand wrapped and hand cut, piece by piece, by skilled craftsmen. The key is to have the cover snap into place with an audible "click" to indicate the perfect alignment of the cover and body pieces. Each tea canister is hand-finished for perfect precision and quality.
