Asanoha, literally meaning “hemp leaf”, is a nature-inspired pattern, which abstractly and geometrically represents overlapping hemp leaves. Traditionally, the pattern is seen in Japanese paper motif, textiles, and such as in this set, ceramicware. The four small cups are each a different color and together make up a bright yet soothing and sophisticated palette. Japanese artisans have long practiced the art of ceramic craftsmanship, and they are known to produce some of the highest quality and most beautiful ceramic dinnerware and dishes. This teacup set is microwave and dishwasher safe and will arrive prepackaged in a black gift box, which makes it easy to wrap up and give as soon as it arrives, or to ship to your recipient.
