K-Ribbon Award Winner, Premium Collection
[Chilmong] Ultra Premium Wave Ottchil Chopstick Set
This is one of Chilmong's ultra-premium collections.
The mesmerizing waves that roll over the chopsticks are inspired by Korea's natural coastline - the water reflect different colors over the four seasons.
This ultra-premium, Korean chopstick & spoon is masterfully carved, then coated with 9 layers of Ottchil (as opposed to 5 layers in their standard collection).
But, what is Ottchil?
Ottchil is a type of traditional Korean lacquer.
It's made from the secretions of the Korean Ott tree. Chilmong only uses sap from premium-grade Ott trees grown in Wonju (Gangwon Province).
Collecting, refining and applying this lacquer is a very nuanced process - which takes decades of experience to master.
For its premium collection, Chilmong uses a concentrated lacquer that contains more Ottchil sap (83.4% to be exact) than standard Ottchil.
Afterwards, each utensil is vigorously rubbed by hand (with an abrasive sponge) over three hundred times in a laborious 3-step process. This process is what produces Ottchil's beautiful glossy sheen.
The natural sheen marks premium craftsmanship and quality.
The Ottchil coating also creates a natural 99.9% antibacterial surface.
This is why Ottchil has long been treated as the best material for tableware in Korean history.
Select from 5 colors: Strong Red Wave, Sunset Yellow Wave, Deep Green Wave, Healing Blue Wave, Majestic Purple Wave
