Handmade Take Bako Bento Box | Natural Band

SKU 17015
The Take Bako is a beautiful traditional two-tier bento box, made of bamboo (take (pronounced ta-keh) in Japanese) by a company of artisans who have been in business in Kyoto since 1898. The highest quality demanded by detail-oriented Kyoto-ites is reflected in every aspect of this box. 

With the Take Bako, you can transport your lunch in a elegant style. To keep the box in tip-top condition, consider using one of our furoshiki cloths. 

The craftsmen behind Take Bako have paid extreme attention to the smallest of details; even the elastic band that holds the box closed has a small, carved bamboo decoration. It comes packaged in a beautiful presentation box.
