At Bento&co, we like to offer original bento boxes- and the Book Bento is one of the best examples of this aim. We are extremely pleased to share its Japanese makie version with all of you. Attention Japanese art lovers!
This Book Bento looks like a beautiful old book with gilded carvings and its practical design lets you organize your meals studiously. The removable inner compartment allows for effortless separation of different ingredients.
Produced by Japanese maker Hakoya, traditionally-trained craftsmen print famous Japanese paintings on bento boxes following the ancient method of Makie. This refined technique takes many years to be master!
