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