Sacredness. Shimenawa 注連縄 - Shimenawa are lengths of braided rice straw rope used for ritual purification in the Shinto religion - to ward against evil spirits and are often set up at a ground-breaking ceremony before construction begins on a new building. They are often found at Shinto shrines, torii gates, and sacred landmarks.
Integrity, Purity. Yuki Sakano cutlery — 'Each piece is made by Yuki herself from solid Nickel silver, and then plated again one last time with pure silver. You can keep the beautiful light colour by polishing with a soft cloth, or as Yuki would intend, enjoy the tarnished silver as it naturally oxidizes.'
