This is a chasen (tea whisk) made by traditional craftspeople in Nara.
Chasen is a tool used to make matcha.
You can enjoy not only making tea, but whipping warm milk to make matcha au lait and cappuccino.
While it is common for knotting threads to be black, this chasen has a cute, subdued madder red color.
