Linen Sake Cup
$ 47.00 USD
This porcelain sake cup is skillfully imprinted with the texture of breezy linen and builds upon the rich history of traditional “Arita Ware”. It is the smallest of the “Ceramic Mimic Fabric” vessels and is the perfect complement to our Linen Sake Server. The unique yet familiar surface has the added benefit of keeping your favorite sake at the perfect temperature so you can take your time. Despite being thin enough to be transparent and being less than half the weight of similar pieces, these cups can be handled with confidence. Both the Sake Server and Sake Cup are finished with a touch of platinum on the rim.
About Arita Ware
The town of Arita in Saga prefecture has a long history of porcelain manufacturing that is thought to date back to the early 16th century. It is said that the first white, hard-paste ceramics in Japan were made here. The spiritual tradition and pride of producing Arita ware has kept it alive throughout the generations, and authentic pieces are still in high-demand to this day.
