The Obizutsu series features a cherry bark "obi" or kimono sash around the mouth of the caddy. The shorter lid design reveals the cherry bark on the inner cylinder, creating a striking visual contrast that enhances the overall design. The outer surface highlights the natural color and pattern of the ebony wood. Additionally, the caddy is finished with beeswax, allowing one to feel the texture of the material itself.
