Komamonyo is a very special two-tier wooden box featuring a pattern of lacquered rings in a vibrant, yet tasteful Japanese colorway. Use as a bento box or a bonbon container, or simply admire as a statement piece.
The name Komamonyo comes from the Japanese word for 'spinning top' (Koma), a traditional child's toy that was very popular in the middle Edo period (around the 18th-19th centuries). It also symbolizes good luck in the form of ever-constant wealth, and opportunities. Let this bento box inspired by the spinning top bring you luck!
Details & Care:
- Each tier is made out of a single piece of wood, as is the lid. The tiers stack securely.
- Dimensions: φ13.0×12.0 cm
- Materials*: Made of tochi (Japanese Chestnut)
- Lacquered inside and out (the colors are derived from natural urushi lacquer).
- *Note that there may be slight variations in the wood pattern, since no two pieces are alike.
- Do not microwave, place in oven, dishwasher or near open flame.
- Hand wash only.
- Use warm water, a soft sponge and a mild dishwashing detergent if necessary. Rinse well and wipe with a soft cloth.
- With proper care, this box will become a family heirloom. We recommend using a furoshiki wrapping cloth to wrap and carry this box.
