Mugiwara (Straw) Rice Bowl, Small

I fell in love with this mugiwara pattern rice bowl at the first sight. It is cute, cheerful and there's some warm quality to it, but this is not just a cute rice bowl.

Mugiwara means dried straws, and it's one of the frequently used traditional pattern. The naming came from a bundle of straws.

This rice bowl is a smaller size, and perfect for women.

In Japan, rice bowls are personal items, just like mug cups in the United States. Even within a family, rice bowls are not to be shared. Therefore, the choice is very personal. Children’s rice bowls tend to be tiny with prints of their favorite characters. Men choose large ones, and women choose little smaller ones to accommodate their appetite. Also several extra rice bowls are kept at home for guests.

This rice bowl is a smaller size, and perfect for women.

The Japanese say that good earthenware “grows.” This means that by use and over time, brand new earthenware changes color gradually. As you use this rice bowl, it will “grow” and gives you a pleasure of owning an authentic Japanese pottery.

A mugiwara rice bowl is microwavable, and dishwasher safe.
