In Japan, Kiri wood (paulownia) has been used to store delicate or perishable items, such as kimonos and rice, because of its unique characteristics. Kiri shuts out moisture, prevents bug infestations and keeps foods fresh because of the tannins it contains. Click here for the related blog.
This Kiri plate series has a line printed by tin in the center and this adds a stylish accent. The plates are lightweight and easy to carry around. They are a perfect way to serve cheese, appetizers, desserts and more! Nagahira-zara is wide long, Hira-zara is shorter, and Seihou-zara is a square shape.
Because of natural material, curve or warp may occur especially in dry environments. When curve is noticed, please place it in environment with moisture by putting it inside of a drawer, or putting glass of water beside it. Then slowly and naturally curve will be recovered.
