Rinse thoroughly with clean lukewarm water, lay it down on a dry cloth, and wipe off the moisture with a soft cloth that wraps around the glass before it dries out.
The legs of wine glasses are thin and easy to break, so do not wipe them by holding the table. Please note that you may twist your legs.

What is Edo Kiriko?
Edo Kiriko began in 1834, the latter half of the Edo period.
It was in the 14th year of the Meiji era that the technique that remains today was established.
Since then, it has achieved a high degree of development in the city of Edo, and traditional patterns such as Nanako, Rokkakukagome, and Kikutsunagi were born.
“Edo Kiriko” is the name of a traditional craft designated by the government, and there are four clear definitions.
① Must be glass.
② Must be made by hand.
③ Use a rotating tool for production.
④ It must be produced in the designated area.
Only those that meet these criteria are called genuine “Edo Kiriko”.
Nowadays, some writers switch materials such as soda glass and crystal glass in order to bring out their individuality and world view.
It is also attractive that it continues to evolve while following history and tradition.
