Our Place’s Lunar New Year Collection Reminds Me of the Joy I Felt Growing Up
While my Japanese American family celebrated the New Year on January first, I had a pretty multicultural upbringing, thanks to my Hawaii-born dad. During Lunar New Year celebrations, which usually happen between January and February, I was still the lucky recipient of red envelopes and cheerful greetings from friends and family of “gong hei fat choy.” The latest collection from Our Place reminds me of that joy I felt when I was growing up.
To help usher in Lunar New Year, which officially starts on January 22 this year, editor-favorite brand Our Place has dropped its Year of the Rabbit collection, part of its Traditionware line. The collection includes its best-selling Always Pan and Perfect Pot in a limited-edition vibrant scarlet. Aptly dubbed Firecracker, the crimson color is designed to “bring joy, good fortune, and help make sparks fly in the kitchen.” The collection also includes a steamer basket paired with cooking chopsticks, and is rounded out with a beautiful rice bowl, chopsticks, and chopstick rest set for four.
Here’s a look at the entire Year of the Rabbit collection.
