Nishijin & Kyoto Yuzen Japanese Chopsticks

Kyo Nishijin Japanese chopsticks are wrapped with Kyoto Yuzen fabric and then sealed with a clear food safe lacquer.

Kyoto Nishijin is yarn-dyed woven fabric from Nishijin, located in the north-east area of Kyoto. The fabrics produced there have been a part of Kyoto's history since the Heian period (794-1185) and have been recognized by the design houses of Lyon, France and Milan, Italy.

Nishijin differs from yuzen in its being more elaborate and ornate, often containing gold threads woven into the design.
