Ancestral Japanese tableware to be presented at la Maison Wa.
Delicate Arita porcelain, sublime Wajima lacquerware, Banshu Hamono cutlery…This winter, La Maison Wa is presenting the creations of some of the oldest and most traditional japanese tableware brands. Incidently, from a cultural point of view “Wa” signifies ‘Japan’ but “Wa” also means ‘circle’ with its round shape expressing fluidity and solidarity and the bringing together of people with similar passions. Inaugurated last August by Yoshiaki Shiokawa, La Maison Wa is essentially an exhibition and sales space dedicated to the culture of the land of the rising sun and will see the majority of Japan’s most traditional brands showcased for the occasion.
