Beyond beautiful

These chopsticks are beyond beautiful! The craftsmanship is amazing, and they are very comfortable to hold and easy to use. My order arrived in two days in the US all the way from Japan, and was beautifully wrapped in a blue and white furoshiki (pictured on the photo). Thank you, Musubi Kiln, for bringing so much beauty in my life!
