Kokoro™ - Traditional Japanese Bowl Set

$139.95 Sale price

Kokoro (Japanese: 心) means "heart; mind; mentality; emotions; feelings" in Japanese.  Conceptually, the term unites the notions of heart, mind, and spirit, seeing these three elements as being indivisible from one other. 
Drawing inspiration from Kokoro and incorporating traditional Japanese styling with contemporary values, we designed this versatile bowl set to be the perfect gift for loved ones and durable enough for daily use.

These traditional Japanese ‘Kokoro’ bowls are cultural, luxurious, beautifully designed, and distinguished in their presence. Typically, affluence is not this affordable.

The bowls are available in several styles and each design is available in different sizes. The stylish designs are what truly separates these traditional Japanese bowls from standard dishware. The designs are inspired by this idea of Kokoro, which alludes to the balance and unity between the core elements of human existence- referring to balance between mind, body, and spirit.

They are dishwasher safe and sturdily constructed from high-quality porcelain ceramic.

It is not every day that we come across such intricately created, culturally rich containers. These are “Kokoro” bowls; Kokoro, in Japanese, is a word evoking the terms ‘heart,’ ‘mind,’ and ‘spirit.’ The designs are inspired by this idea of Kokoro, which alludes to the balance and unity between the core elements of human existence. The first design is a spiraling blue and white that moves inward toward the core of the circle; the complete design is nearly hypnotic in its beauty. Another model has a similar color combination, but it is almost impossible to describe the design using words-- despite the chaos, the final image produces a sense of order and peacefulness. The third design is copper and bronze, aged and rustic in a beautiful way. Finally, the fourth design is a spiraling series of dashes moving outward from the middle of the circular bowl.

This set is a perfect example of unique kitchenware that can find a home in a wide variety of dining environments, and stand out in any dishware repertoire.

These incredible, culturally rich bowls are perfect for anybody who appreciates Japanese culture and wants to bring an authentic touch of traditional style with a contemporary flair into their home. Available for purchase at an impressive and reasonable cost, these wares make for a great gift idea.

The sizes are small, medium, and large. The smallest is a three-inch mini-bowl, not meant for dining, but almost as a small bowl for snacks or even a coaster. Meanwhile, the medium Japanese dinner bowl is a typical 6.5-inch bowl- not meant to hold an entire large meal, but perfect for a few items. These are still dinner bowls, nonetheless, even though they do not necessarily contain a full ‘large’ dinner on them, by many standards. The 8 Inch bowl, however, is perfect for the main course. The 8-inch bowl is practically perfect for larger dinner items; you also have to remember that these dinner bowls come from Japanese culture, which has a very different perspective on food types and quantities than many other cultures on the planet.

Although these bowls are built from porcelain ceramic and demand careful handling and usage, they are also constructed to be durable enough for daily use. By design, they are also purposefully under-glazed.

The bowls are produced in a traditional Japanese style, and the set is certified by CIQ, EEC, CE/ EU, FDA, LFGB, and SGS.
