Japanese Kumiko-style Sake Bottle Case

Kumiko, a Japanese traditional woodworking technique, refers to a woodworking technique in which wood is assembled into geometric patterns without using nails. It is a delicate technique in which grooves, holes, and haws are made in thinly split wood, and each piece is assembled one by one while adjusting it with a canner, saw, or chisel. Geometric patterns are expressed by inserting small wooden parts called “leaves” into the lattice-shaped pieces in various shapes.

Since real kumiko is expensive and its use as a package is limited, it was made by laser processing. It can be used not only for sake, but also for a wide range of other products such as wine, champagne, and whiskey.
