I’ve always loved the feeling of drinking from a wooden vessel, especially when they are impeccably crafted. The wide cups are carved to approximately a 2mm wall thickness, so they naturally have a delicate dimension and feel lightweight. The lid doubles as a coaster. We also like to use the cup as a container for small objects and snacks. Perfect for a little injection of nature into your life!
Kami is a series of wooden drinking vessels and tableware made by master woodworker Takahashi Kougei from Hokkaido, Japan. Each of the pieces in the collection is handcrafted from Sen (castor aralia) trees using highly sophisticated woodturning techniques passed down for generations. The name Kami, means “paper” in Japanese in reference to the thin wall thickness and white tone of the wood.

I am a linden wood bowl. I’m perfect for cereals, soups, stews, oatmeal, snacks, porridge and rice. Also, good for small fruits like cherries and grapes.$65.00
I am a linden wood cup. I was carved out of a single piece of wood, so my grain is continuous and lovely. Not to brag too too much. I’m the perfect serving for a person and you will love touching my curves.$50.00
We are a linden wood dinner setting. Let me tell you a bit about my family, we’re one part plate, one part dish and one part bowl. Like most families, we sometimes need our personal space, but we always find time to come together for special occasions. That’s the Cara family tradition.$178.00
I am a linden wood dish. I am the product of my mother and father, the bowl and the plate. Ideally I’m used for salad, but I don’t mind being treated to an ice cream sundae every once and a while too.$85.00
