Tea Caddies

Designer

Based on the traditional ‘chaire’ used in the tea ceremony, these tea caddies are made from hand blown glass with cork stoppers. The caddies are presented in hand-sewn bags made from vintage kimono silk, based on ‘shifuku’: pouches made from precious fabrics used to store tea ceremony utensils.
A demonstration of a traditional method of tying the shifuku can be seen here.
