tea pot cushions ?

by Ambrose » May 10th 12 4:23 pm

Anyone know where I can purchase a tea pot cushion ? Similar to the one attached as in that it is made of fabric. Been wanting a few of these and the one I found is out of stock.

I've seen them around, but not recently. I do know where to find rattan woven ones, but that's not quite the same thing. Example on my blog here:

I find the fabric ones to be a bit less useful - the tea pools near the base of the pot and creates a nasty ring, so I ended up not using them even though I had one.

ten ren has them, it looks like online they bundle it with a set, but you might be able to call one to see if they will sell them seperately

If you want it let me know, and I will send it to you, N/C.

Those are very nice, the pot is very beautiful as well. If you could share where I could get at few that would be great!

Bought them in Kyoto at this shop, this is the small size. Not sure if they take orders from the US or somewhere else though
