In this series of Magewappa products, we introduce cute and popular characters to the world of sophisticated Japanese woodwork - the bentwood magewappa technique! Magewappa products are made out natural Japanese wood. A great combination of artisan work and modern culture appeal, we are proud to offer this traditionally-crafted item for you, directly from Japan.

Product Description

Magewappa means 'bent wood' in Japanese. It's a traditional form of woodcraft that is found in Odate, in the northern Akita prefecture. It is an officially designated traditional craft form in Japan. In the past, it was encouraged for farmers and lower-class samurai by the lord of the area as winter work.
Lisa Larson Hedgehog Magewappa Round Bento Box is a classic two-tier cylindrical box with a matching fitted lid. On the lid sits a group of three cheerful hedgehogs, smiling brightly. The blonde-bent wood sides, made from straight grain wood, are fastened with small strips of darker wood by highly-skilled artisans using traditional methods. A matching wooden separator is included.
As with all real magewappa ware, the wood is uncoated, which allows the rice packed inside to breathe, keeping the food fresh and tasty, even when it's cold. The wood also smells wonderful, since it's cedar! Somehow, the cedar aroma seems to enhance the flavor of your food.

Product Care

Since this is a natural wooden magewappa box, some care should be taken with this box:
  • Wash in lukewarm water. Do not use dishwasher detergent, unless it's absolutely necessary. We recommend packing food that may stain the wood in a separate container, or in bento cups. Use a gentle sponge; nothing abrasive.
  • Do not leave it immersed in water.
  • After washing it, wipe off any excess water with a soft cloth, then leave the box open to dry completely. Replace the lid only after it has completely dried out, after a day or so.
  • With proper care, this box will last for many years.
