It isn’t often that the words ‘gorgeous’ and ‘toothpick holder’ appear in the same sentence, but this is the most gorgeous toothpick holder we’ve ever seen. It’s unique base is carved so that when the holder is loaded, the toothpicks create a soothing, wave-like undulation. When was the last time so much thought went into such a modest household object?
The undulating toothpick holder was designed by Mikiya Kobayashi for the the Asahikawa, Hokkaido-based product brand kime (meaning, ‘grain of wood’). Each piece has been skillfully hand-crafted by artisans and comes in three varieties of natural wood. If you like it, also check out the kime bottle opener, both of which are available in our shop.
