Hashikura Matsukan

Hashikura Matsukan

The town of Obama in Fukui is famous for its chopsticks.  Founded in 1922, Hashikura Matsukan is one of the best established producers in the town, combining tradition lacquer and other techniques with bright colours and designs for the modern table.

In the past they have worked with the design studio nendo to explore the limits of creativity in making chopsticks, and their range brings together utility, style, and a sense of fun.

Hashikura, by the way, means ‘chopstick warehouse.’
