A strainer recommended for everyday use that makes use of the properties of bamboo.
Umakozaru with a unique shape woven from bamboo.
Not only is the strong and supple characteristics of bamboo woven into the fabric, but it also has a very unique design.
Bamboo utensils have long been used as utensils around the kitchen due to their high water absorbency. The finely woven mesh is perfect for draining water without things getting stuck or falling out.
You can use it as a strainer in the kitchen, or as a stylish basket or interior decoration in the living room or room.
How about incorporating the warmth of bamboo into your daily life?
Impressive unique appearance. Origin of Umakozaru.
The most eye-catching thing is this strange shape.
The name “Magozaru” is derived from its original shape.
Umako used to refer to the people who pulled the mouths of horses that carried people and goods in the olden days.
It has an interesting design in which the main body of the colander looks like a horse's mouth and the handle looks like a rope.
active in the kitchen. A strainer suitable for draining water.
The bamboo strainer has good water absorption and breathability, and is also suitable for draining water.
When washing long leafy vegetables such as green onions and spinach, water drips from the whole and the kitchen is flooded. Even if you put it on a regular flat colander, there is a problem that water will fall from the protruding part.
By setting the height of the Umako Zaru and tilting the vegetables, water droplets can be collected at the bottom and the water can be drained. If you put a towel or towel underneath it, it's easy to clean after use.
It can be used to wash pasta and noodles after boiling, and the opening on the side of the handle is narrow, so you can quickly transfer it to a plate from there.
This is a nice design that covers the point where it is easy to spill from the edge, which tends to be a neck when using a strainer.
The point of storage is "breathability".
When it comes to bamboo and wooden utensils, one thing that bothers me is how to store them.
Even if it has excellent water absorption and hygroscopicity, mold will grow in a humid and closed place.
Umakozaru is tall and cannot be stored in a drawer or cupboard, but the handle can be hung on a hook or handle, so it can be stored in a well-ventilated place.
After washing with a small amount of dishwashing detergent, you can use it for a long time by simply wiping it off with water.
Craftsmen weave bamboo grown by nature.
We cut bamboo from the mountains in Gamagori, Aichi Prefecture and peel the green bamboo for use.
The color of the basket changes from green bamboo to flesh to amber over time. The more you use it, the more it tastes, so you can enjoy the change over time.
"Gozame weaving" is a technique in which thick bamboo strips are woven vertically and thin bamboo strips are used horizontally.
It is said that this name was given because it looks like "mat" or "sudare" when it is woven. This technique has been used for baskets and baskets for a long time because it is strong by weaving vertically and horizontally.
"Long lasting use"
Thoughts of Mr. Gomakochi
Mr. Gomakochi is a couple making bamboo baskets in Gamagori, Aichi Prefecture.
Each one is handmade, and it is finished with time and effort by carefully weaving strips of bamboo. As we live our daily lives, tools made of wood and bamboo, which change with the passage of time, bring warmth to the space and comfort to the heart.
