Le Creuset’s demi tea kettle is colored in Hibiscus pink with white cherry blossom decal. The kettle has stainless steel handle brackets for secure handling and a heat-resistant handle. A set of two Sakura bistro mugs, which carries a suggested retail price of $50, is made of stoneware and has a 14 ounce capacity.

The company will launch a full collection of Sakura appliqué pieces, including cast iron, stoneware and mills.
