28th of September: Hi, Raneta is here. From now until 5th of October I won't be processing or shipping any orders. If you decide to purchase any of these beautiful adornments during this time, please note that they will be shipped after 6th of October, regardless of the shipping method you choose. I hope you have a delightful fall filled with wonderful tea sessions and adventures. Thanks!
Chabana is a generic term for the arrangement of flowers put together for display in a tea ceremony. In Japan, there is a certain stylistic category of KaDo, the "Way of Flowers," specifically related to tea. This way developed out of Ikebana, which had its origin in early Buddhist flower offerings. One of the common traits we find in Japanese aesthetics is a celebration of the minute, the miniature. These vases lend a perfect accent to the tea ceremony.
