"Magewappa" Bento box


◆ MageWappa Only for Real Bento Connoisseurs ◆

"Magewappa" is a traditional craft made by bending very thin strips of forest-grown Japanese cedar into functional objects, and is created as a container for grains and sake. The product is especially popular as a lunch box, because any excess moisture of rice or hot food is absorbed by the cedar wood to maintain an ideal humidity for the contents of the bento.
Also, the features of this type of bento box are the beautiful grain, color and pleasant aroma of the cedar and the classical design, making the Magewappa popular amongst all Japanese, regardless of age or gender.

 

 

◆ feature 1: nanotec polyurethane coating 

Magewappa Bento Boxes by Wakacho are applied with a nanoparticle polyurethane coating to maintain water repellency and luster for a long time, and increasing durability. 

 

Compared to the one without coating, it is more durable and easier to maintain - easy to wash, easy to dry off, and does not stain easily. This also means it's very hygienic. (The care instruction, you can find at lower of this page.)


◆ feature 2: Round corner by hand finishing 

Material is Japanese natural cedars. The craftsmen carefully shaved out the wood, assembled one by one, and processed it into a round finish with. smooth curves. 

◆ feature 3: Traditional paint-technique "Kyuu-Nuri"

- 紀 州 塗 Kishu-Nuri -

The colored lacquering and graphic patterns are finished using the traditional Kishu-nuri technique.
