ALART Aluminum Circles Oshibori Wet Towel Tray
The metallic luster of this simple and modern oshibori tray is eye-catching on the dining table. It can also be used as a small plate for sweets or a coaster for sake cups.
It has a matte finish, and the pattern of interconnected circles can be faintly seen from different angles of light. The continuous circles mean "eternity," and this pattern has been favored in Japan since ancient times.
An oshibori is a wet towel used to wipe hands, and in Japan it is sometimes provided at restaurants or when invited to someone's home. Softer than a paper napkin and easier to clean hands, it is convenient, hygienic, and environmentally friendly since it is not disposable.
The use of aluminum makes it light and thin, and it can be stacked for storage, so it takes up little space.
It goes well with a variety of materials such as wood and cloth, and blends in nicely with any space. They are also used in first-class hotels and restaurants.
