Mamezara Sale starts Monday, September 12, 3pm EST

The Wait is Nearly Over… Handmade For Japan’s Mamezara Sale starts 3pm EST September 12 on Etsy

Handmade For Japan will start selling its Mamezara limited edition plates on Etsy beginning 3pm EST on Monday, September 12th.  Each plate costs $50 and all the proceeds go to GlobalGiving’s Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund, as an anonymous donor is kindly covering all the production costs.

On Sale for a Worthy Cause
Each Mamezara has been designed and individually handmade by HFJ’s very own potter-extraordinaire Ayumi Horie. The Mamezara, which in Japanese means small serving dish, is adorned with an origami crane folding pattern. HFJ’s beloved bear logo designed by Dave Gordon appears on the foot. The crane symbolizes our hopes for the people of Japan to rebuild and to let them know we stand with them.

The plates are approximately 4 inches in diameter and are microwave/dishwasher safe. Mamezara dishes are used in Japan for small servings of food, appetizers, or soy sauce for sushi and sashimi. These dishes come in many different shapes and colors and are widely collected because of their versatility and range of designs. HFJ’s Mamezara dish offers a creative way to present food and is ideal for soy sauce or serving bite-sized snacks.

The Mamezara sale day of September 12 coincides with Otsukimi, or full moon viewing. As we commemorate the 6 month anniversary of the Northern Japan disaster, we also remember the 10th anniversary of the 9-11 tragedy in the U.S.

Help HFJ towards our goal of raising $100,000 for the disaster victims in Japan. Come and join in this global fund-raising effort by buying one or more of these lovingly made plates. But be quick because only 55 are available for sale!
