Exclusive to the British Museum, a bamboo travel cup inspired by Hokusai’s Great Wave.

Made from sustainably sourced bamboo fibres, this cup can be reused indefinitely, preventing unnecessary plastic waste. The cup features a non-drip, re-sealable lid, a protective sleeve, and is dishwasher safe.

About the Fuji Wave:

Kanagawa-oki Nami Ura or The Great Wave Off Kanagawa by Katsushika Hokusai was published in 1831 as the first in his woodblock print series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji. The remarkable image features fishermen cowering in three skiffs under the wave about to crash down upon them. Mount Fuji can be seen in the distance, unperturbed by the impending catastrophe.

It is likely that around 5,000 prints were made from Hokusai’s woodblock, although many of the originals were destroyed during periods of war or natural disasters. An original from a later run is now housed in the British Museum, where it is only displayed for a maximum of six months every five years to prevent light damage to the colours of the image.

A stylish and eco-friendly gift.
