MARUNAO’s legacy began in 1939 when the Fukuda family’s first generation, Naoyoshi Fukuda, began making carpentry tools in Kanazawa, Japan. Since then, Marunao has worked out of the Niigata Prefecture, continuing to make a variety of hand tools and Classical Japanese instruments. In 2003, under the direction of the Fukuda family’s third generation, Marunao moved into the manufacturing of chopsticks and utensils. These craftsmen draw on their rich experience of working with ebony and shitan (rosewood) using traditional finishing technique. Marunao chopsticks and utensils are highly functional, and are carefully crafted with exquisite attention to every detail; from the tips of the chopsticks to their signature octagonal shape, whilst always bearing in mind the dining experience of the user.
Crafted from 100% high-quality Japanese cotton, these chopstick bags are made to be a matching pair with Marunao's signature chopsticks. They are strong and durable, and are available in three color choices: Grey/Blue, Olive/Blue, and Pink/Blue.
Fold down the top, wrap with the leather string, and lastly, tuck in the wood ball. Bag is designed to fit all sizes of chopsticks and is easy to clean. Protect your beautiful chopsticks and bring them with you on the go!
