Kamiyama Magewappa Bento Box
- +

This Magewappa lunch box is made in the most traditional way, using only natural Japanese materials and no synthetic adhesives or paints. From the cedar frame to the bamboo nails and cherry blossoms seam, this bento box is a connection with nature. Magewappa, in which premium straight grain cedar wood is crafted with steam, has a long history and maker Nao Kondo’s traditional manufacturing techniques are a valuable revival of the ancient crafting methods. It's a sustainable process from creation, to use, to finish. All the scraps of wood from the production process are burned to ashes in the garden of the workshop. Because all aspects of this product are biodegradable, no environmentally burdensome waste is generated. After many years, when you no longer need this beautiful bento box, you can burn it and return it to the Earth from which it came.

About the Maker

Although Magewappa itself has a history of over 1000 years, there are only a few workshops in Japan that use this method. Creator Nao Kondo’s goal is not to make traditional crafts that are only beautiful in form, but to make products that will return to their natural environment when they are made, when they are used, and when they are finished. They hope that people who are interested in the fusion of sustainable and traditional crafts will pick up their products.
