Nishijin Kimono Bento
Nishijin Kimono Bento
The Nishijin Bento Murasaki is tailor-made for Bento&Co by esteemed bento-maker, Hakoya. The name Nishijin comes from a district in Kyoto famous for its kimono fabric production. We love its large capacity and the signature kimono-inspired pattern. For the matching bento bag, be sure to order the Kimono Bento Bag Large (and not Medium!)
