Hinoki Wooden Coffee Mug
Beautiful mug made from Japanese cypress (Hinoki) scrap wood harvested in Yamanashi Prefecture. Carefully handcrafted by Mr Shibata in Yamanashi.
Hinoki or Japanese Cypress is one of Japan's most prized woods which grows only in Japan and a part of Taiwan, it is prized for its beautiful grains, fragrance and smooth texture.
Finished with food-safe polyurethane coating (10+ layers) these mugs can be used for both hot and cold drinks without leaving stain. Very easy to take care of.
Due to the nature of handmade products, please expect slight variations to the product images displayed. Tone, grain and thickness will vary with each mug.
*These mugs are not made with FSC certified timber any more but the quality of wood is still equally good and harvested in the same area.
Grains in each mug will all be different from what are seen in the photos.
Hand wash with kitchen soap with soft brush, sponge or dishcloth. Do not leave to soak, dry properly after wash, avoid direct sunlight. Not suitable for dishwashers or microwave.
When pouring boiling water into the mug sometimes you might taste wood affecting your drink. We recommend to avoid using boiling water but use 70~80C / 158~176F when this happens.
Leaving the drink in the mug for overnight or extreme temperature change (eg. Putting the mug in the fridge then use boiling water) may lead to causing the wood to crack or split.
