Chopsticks Brothers / Bamboo, Chopsticks and Holder

Chopsticks Brothers

Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

Chopsticks are the main tools in East Asian dining. They usually come with matching chopstick holders, which prevent the chopsticks from directly touching the table. The holders can be made of wood, jade, metal etc. However, in low-end restaurants or fast-food places, chopstick holders are often missing. The two-in-one design of combining chopsticks with a holder uses fast-growing bamboo, which is not harmful and environmentally friendly. It’s very easy to separate the chopsticks from the holder. This product helps to maintain a fine and useful dining habit.

One of those, 'why has no one thought of this before?' moments. A beautifully executed solution that would delight any user.
