Chopsticks are a beautiful utensil. Their simplicity is elegant while remaining incredibly functional. Unfortunately though, like many other objects, their manufacturing techniques have fallen victim to quantity over quality resulting in chopsticks that are made from poor quality materials and often loaded with harmful chemicals.
Hank By Henry has set out to combat that. Located in the USA, HBH uses local materials and produces in small batches so as to have better control over the quality of their work. The wood varieties they work with are beautiful and each one is finished with oil and beeswax which is way better for users and the environment.
The patterns that are painted on the chopsticks is also a modern update that is still respectful of these traditional utensils. Each pair is a tiny piece beautiful art. I'll have one of each please!
