The floral pattern on this stoneware cup is inspired by traditional Japanese kimonos.
The designs are printed on thin, supple paper and transferred to the cup with pressure and a wet brush. Mr Sabashi is one of the few artisan craftsmen who possesses the specialized skill needed for this traditional printing technique.
Dishwashers and microwaves are not recommended. To protect the delicate pattern on the Kimono cup, hand wash it.
