Amazing to claim, but the lightness of Usuhari adds a new sensation to the simple action of sipping your favourite daily drink, whether water, juice or alcohol. Usuhari enriches the brief moment spent drinking, each and every day. It is simply out of this world and may even make you reconsider your ideas on glass.

Usuhari - The elegance of ultra-thin glass

These remarkably thin drinking glasses called Usu-hari (thin glass) are each carefully hand blown and crafted by master craftsmen in the Sumida district in downtown Tokyo. They are created using the same techniques that was traditionally used for hand-making glass light bulbs. Less than 1mm thick, the feel of it in your hands, the sound ice makes when it is swirled in the glass, and fineness of the rim is truly exquisite and unique to this glass.

Usuhari appear to be extremely delicate but it can be handled like normal glassware. So experience and enjoy this exquisite glass for yourself often. It adds an exquisite touch to enjoying your favourite drink.

Shotoku Glass

Shotoku Glass was originally established as a manufacturer of mouth-blown glass light bulbs. As the process of lightbulb making became automated, the artisans of Shotoku Glass shifted their focus on creating glassware. Taking the niche technique of mouth-blown glass they created glassware that are lightweight, incredibly thin and durable. These drinking glasses are so extremely fine and delicate, they make you feel as though you are holding the liquid itself.
