Yamachiku Chopsticks

Founded in 1963 in Kumamoto Prefecture, Yamachiku is known throughout Japan for their thoughtfully designed chopsticks. At every stage of the production process - from forestry to packaging - Yamachiku relies on the expertise of skilled artisans who turn locally harvested moso bamboo into colorful tableware. In addition to its role as a traditional material for chopsticks, bamboo is a sustainable and renewable resource, owing to its fast growth and abundance in the Kumamoto region.
