Perch this carefully crafted Monkey Hook from a ledge or table edge to hold totes, umbrellas, scarves or a light sweater out of the way yet easily accessible. This handy element moves from space to space as needed and looks great just hanging around.
Nambu Cast Iron was first made in the middle of the 17th century in Iwate, Northern Japan. A master from Kyoto was summoned there to create an iron pot for a tea ceremony, and it was the beginning of the Nambu Tekki (Cast Iron) craft. It became exemplary of Japanese Traditional Craft, and is still popular today. The black color is the result of a Japanese lacquer glaze call urushi which prevents rust. The Hook Monkey is part of a range of animal and symbol designs created in the famed material for this collection offered from Saikai.
