We think this beautiful mahogany bowl oryoki set is perfect for oryoki. The wood nesting bowls are light, sturdy, well-balanced, and feel great in your hand.

Included in the Oryoki Bowl Set are 3 nesting bowls, a 3-piece utensil set, and a 4-piece set of cloths.

The utensils include a spoon, chopsticks, and traditional setsu scraper.  The spoon and setsu are palmwood, made in Thailand; and the chopsticks are ironwood, and made in Japan.  Instructions for traditional setsu assembly and two squares of cloth are included. A spatula with a dishwasher safe silicone tip and birch wood handle can be added for $6 by choosing this option.

The cloths include a wrapping cloth, wiping cloth, utensil sleeve, and top cloth. They are 100% cotton and come in black, navy blue, white, grey, or burgundy.

Oryoki literally means a “vessel that contains just enough,” and refers to the eating form that evolved in Buddhist monasteries that encourages monks and nuns to eat mindfully and just enough to keep one’s practice strong. An Oryoki Set a set of bowls that nest, along with the accompanying utensils and clothes.

  1. I purchased this set several weeks ago, and was recently able to give it its “first drive” during a Rohatsu sesshin. These bowls are beautifully made, lightweight, and quiet—most important during Oryoki meals. I appreciated the option of receiving a setsu, along with instructions for sewing the fabric and two initial pieces of fabric. I am very grateful for the set being offered and recommend it without reservation.

  2. The wooden bowls are very nice. The spoon has a sliver of wood that caught on the cloth. The cloths were okay

  3. FAB Orioki set! The bowls are just right-nice wood grain, great size, light weight and nest beautifully. The utensils and cloths are also of fine quality. Very pleased with my purchase.
