Wooden mug handmade of the rare Castor Aralia tree grown in Hokkaido. Each mug is hand shaped by master woodworker Takahashi Kougei, who is able to turn it down to 2 millimeters thick. This allows light through, heat to be retained, and remain sturdy. "Kami" means "paper" in Japanese, and it is named after its sheer texture. It gives a smooth, warm touch on your lips.
This is the larger of the two mugs in the photo & holds approximately 9 oz, we don't carry the coaster. Each mug takes a full four weeks from rough lumber to final product and an astonishing amount of effort to hand produce the final product.
They are lightweight, easy to hold, and are resistant to breaking when dropped, so they can also be used by young children.
