Wl_beklina_canister_f

From Wired: "It takes Japanese artisans a year to hand-lacquer and engrave each of these 8-inch-tall cherrywood tea canisters. There's no better way to keep your genmaicha fresh and dry."

From the canister website: "Handmade Japanese cherry wood tea canister, ideal environment for storing loose tea and other food items where moisture is unwanted, meant to last several lifetimes. Delicately made with respect to the beautiful grain of natural wood, it takes over a year to produce these beautiful artisan pieces."

Approximately 8" tall and 3" in diameter.

$220.
