Kaku Rectangular Plate by Wasara

WASARA Rectangular Plate KAKU - Medium 15.0 x 15.0cm


The name ‘Wasara’ is formed of two Japanese words – ‘wa’ and ‘sara’. The most direct translation of these is ‘Japanese’ and ‘dish’ respectively. But, like many Japanese words, each can also be written using different characters to give different meanings: ‘wa’ can also be written to mean peace or cycle; ‘sara’ can be written to mean renewal. This careful choice of name reflects Wasara’s strong awareness of Japan and its relation to the environment.

This WASARA Kaku plate has been inspired by classic Japanese ceramic plates, which often are rectangular. It's Japanese name also refers to its shape as "KAKU" means rectangular. It is easy to hold at 15 x 15cm.  Perfect for picnics, casual or formal dinner parties, and functions. Guilt-free disposable tableware without the clean up!
