Bamboo Cup - Red

Hand-made bamboo cup finished with colored urushi (lacquer). The bamboo is shaved allowing its straight fibers to stand out on the exterior and a shiny, matte tin finish on the interior adds both durability and an attractive contrast to each cup. The thin, lightweight cups have a pleasant feel and can be used with hot or cold beverages. They have excellent heat retention, however the exterior does not get hot making it comfortable to hold. Each piece is unique and the shape and size will vary slightly.
