Sakura Pot / Tea and Life

Sakura Pot
Sakura Pot

Chinese porcelain is famous all over the world, and China is one of the birth land of sakura.
We combine the concept of porcelain and the traditional flower. In addition, hemp rope is an
ancient tool. But it is also a good decoration material.Twisting hemp rope to the handle of
teapot, can increase the friction. This tea set represent the culture of China --simple but
not crude.
At the bottom of the cup which we designed a small surprise, we designed a concave like Sakura,
people can see the indistinct “Sakura”in the bottom of the cup when enjoy their tea.
We believe that people will smile in the use of this tea set.
