Paulownia wooden container - 米櫃
This Komebitsu box is made of paulownia wood. Paulownia wood has served as materials for containers of precious products since ancient times. Paulownia has humidity-controlling and insect-repelling properties that keep rice fresh and protect its flavor because of its alkaline material. This box is also suitable for storing brown rice, wheat, beans, millet and other grains.
This rice storage box is finished solely utilizing a plate of pure paulownia wood, without using any metal fittings such as nails. Its wide opening and its high-precision 2 pieces top cover make it easier for users to take rice in and out of the box, while completely shutting out the open air with inner lids.
