Sarasa Japanese Teacup Set


The sarasa Japanese teacup set is the most elegant way to serve and enjoy a cup of Japanese green tea. The exotic floral designs and vibrant colours evoke a feeling of opulence.

‘Sarasa’ is the Japanese word for calico, a richly painted and printed fabric originally from India. From the mid-14th to late-16th centuries, Japan imported all their calico, or sarasa, from India. It was highly prized among the wealthy samurai and merchant classes. As Japan developed their own textile printing and dyeing techniques, workshops all over the country began imitating the exotic fabrics. Sarasa designs are characterised by intricate depictions of flowers and other plants.
