In the past, farmers from Northern China used naturally dried HULUs (gourds) to scoop water and wash rice. Tableware and eating utensils were considered essential family belongings that connected everyone to the same table, symbolizing harmony and a sense of home.
In Feng-Shui, the gourd serves as the instrument to block the evil and invite the good. And the shape of the gourd also resembles the Chinese character of “吉(Ji)” – meaning good fortune. Using high quality acrylic, HULU Salt & Pepper Set serves such as the lucky charm and a happy element on the dining table.
