Chocolate Gift - "The Best of the Best" x Hand-made Japanese Kamawanu Towel Wrapping
"The Best of the Best” chocolate gift set is a selection of Hello Chocolate’s historical best-selling bean-to-bar chocolates from around the world, packed in an exquisite Japanese hand-dyed KAMAWANU 100% cotton cloth (called Tenugui).
Bean-to-bar or craft chocolate is a revolutionary concept that has been drastically transforming the chocolate industry. Craft chocolates deviate from mass-produced chocolates in that they represent only the finest and most natural ingredients, can contain rare varieties of cocoa beans, ascertain environmental conservation, and emphasize positive social impact by ensuring a sustainable ecology, community, and economy. Additionally, craft chocolate bars are exceptionally delicious and pure, relatively healthier than mass-produced chocolates, and both the bars and packaging are always beautifully designed.
This gift is a great example of sustainability and reusability of its' packaging. Chocolates are wrapped into Japanese cotton hand-dyed Tenugui fabric that later can be used as home decor or an accessory (bandana wristband, anyone?)
KAMAWANU is specialized in the making of TENUGUI, a hand-dyed rectangular cloth traditionally used in Japan as functional everyday housewares / garments. The TENUGUI is created using the "CHUSEN" hand-dyeing technique, which dates back to the Meiji Period more than 100 years ago and is still used by today's craftspeople who value its refined textures and visual qualities. Since its establishment in 1987, KAMAWANU has developed more than 500 different TENUGUI patterns, thus bringing new life to the "CHUSEN" hand-dyeing tradition, including the training of apprentice "CHUSEN" craftspeople.
