Introdution

Gourd,named “Hu”,which means empty melon in ancient China,has the meaning of auspiciousness and abundance. People sliced a gourd into two parts and used them as bailer at least in Han Dynasty (206 BC – 220 AD). However, as a kind of utensil, gourds are gradually disappearing in modern life.

简介

葫芦,古称“瓠”,吉祥如意多子多福的寓意。早在汉代,古人就有把葫芦切成两半,作为水瓢使用。然而,作为器具,葫芦在现代社会逐渐退出了舞台。

By perfect cutting to make every part has its use, the new tea set made by natural material continues the idea of ancient Chinese people, and brings gourd back to modern life. It has the nature of beauty and is easy for manufacture. It's eco-friendly.

通过完美的切割,使每个部件都物尽其用,茶具即延续了古人取材自然的设计理念,又把葫芦带回了现代社会。它具有自然之美,并且易于生产,对环境友好。
