The Japanese always know how to do it right--even down to their dinner decor, as with the OEY Tableware collection. Inspired by the traditional samurai hair tie technique, it is a form of Japanese paper craft that centers around knotting.
Designed by Ken Yokomizo & Mariko Murai for Design Yard, the OEY Tableware collection includes, according to Yanko Design, intricately corded paper rings, chopsticks, and napkin holders. Handmade from paper and silk, it is a stunning addition for any special occasion.
