Hida-Takayama is a centre of wooden furniture production in Japan and has a well-established reputation for expert carpentry. The predominantly mountainous area of Hida is densely forested and home to hundreds of tree species.
These cutting boards were made of itayakaede, painted maple wood, just one of the wood types available in the local forests, and show off the wood’s distinctive properties. Each cutting board is carefully handmade and coated with perilla oil to highlight the one-of-a-kind woodgrain of the tree from which it is made. Maple trees are prized for their yellow-orange autumn foliage and their strong, resistant wood that is easy to work with. Itayakaede is a particularly popular choice among woodworkers for its light, creamy colour and gently flowing woodgrain pattern.

Handwashing recommended.
Dry thoroughly after washing to prevent mould.
