Japanese Oak Tray "Rectangle Rays"
- Trays made using a new technique

This tray has an intricate grain pattern that look as if it were made by weaving sliced veneers of Japanese oak. Made by a wood-inlay technique, the Mokuzogan method, and not woven at all, the surface is flat and smooth.
Wood sliced as thin as paper is called "Tsukiita". These thinly sliced wood veneer sheets are cut at a precise angle and pasted to create this pattern. From there they are fashioned into a unique tray.

Each tray is hand-made from natural materials. There may be a slight difference in the shape, colour and wood grain patterns due to the inconsistencies of the materials. There may also be some scratch marks or unevenness.

Japan-Best is first and foremost a story about Japanese craftsmen with the influence of contemporary design. We are inspired by the timeless beauty of traditional Japanese craftsmanship, and their ability to adapt to our modern lifestyle. The more brands we meet, the more passionate we become about the stories behind each product; the skills of the craftsmen, or the long tradition of an object left unchanged for generations yet somehow remaining contemporary.
Japan-Best is a collection of Japanese brands, which we have selected for the originality of their design, the quality of their production, the fact that their production is “Made in Japan”, and the long history that they maintain, quite often for several generations.
Our selection of Japanese food is also based on craftsmanship in agriculture. We choose brands based on how they are made and we love brands that continue to use traditional natural techniques to grow food and prepare it. Good packaging and design is always and added joy to find!
