Magewappa Bento Box / 13.5cm x 20.5cm x h5.5cm

The cedar lunch box will help to absorb excess moisture and keep its contents fresh and flavorful. A divider is included to allow the interior to be sectioned off.

Magewappa is one of the most beautiful examples of traditional Japanese woodcraft. Natural cedar is stripped, boiled, bent and bound with cherry bark. Previously only Akita cedar over a hundred-fifty years was used in the manufacturing process but in recent years, due to conservation efforts, fine grained natural cedar is sourced also from neighboring prefectures in Northern Japan, including Yamagata, Aomori and Iwate Prefectures. Yoshinobu Shibata and his son Yoshimasa represent two generations of Magewappa artisans that are carrying on the tradition.
