A simple and warm vegetable storage box made by the long-established box store, Masuda Kirigakuten The humidity control and insect repellent effect of paulownia keeps the freshness of the vegetable and creates a flow of air in combination with the gap between the inner slatted bottom and the lid, making it difficult to become a humid environment. Since the lid is not integrated with the main body, it does not crush vegetables. The vegetable preservation BOX, which is one of the preservation methods of vegetables, is wrapped in newspaper and stored in a cool and dark place. Since paulownia has antibacterial effects, it suppresses the generation of mold that can be made into garlic and onions. The same dimensional standard as the rice bran made by Masuda Kirigakuten can be stacked on top of each other, and when stored side by side, a beautiful sense of unity as a kitchen canister is born. Two sizes are available for different purposes depending on the purpose and the type of vegetables to be stored. ● Material: Paulownia Handle: leather ● Size Vegetable storage box L: w215mm × d215mm × h242mm ● How to care Do not wipe with water. Wipe gently with a dry wipe. If you are worried about dirt, wipe it with alcohol on a dry cloth. In order to prevent excessive accumulation of moisture in the paulownia, the moisture absorbed by the paulownia can be released once if the contents are empty at the turn of the season, etc., and dried in a well-ventilated place for about half a day. ● Notes on use When a vegetable storage box is placed on top of a rice bin, the slatted portion for flowing air is sealed. In addition, there is a risk that soil will fall on the lid of the rice. It is recommended to put a rice bin on the vegetable storage box. If you are concerned about the soil falling from the slats, we recommend that you place a newspaper under the vegetable storage box or lay a newspaper inside the vegetable storage. * This product does not extend the expiration date. It is a product to keep the taste delicious by the characteristics of paulownia. ● Characteristics of paulownia Paulownia wood has a very small shrinkage rate, so it can be refined with little deviation or cracking in its design, and it has little dimensional change. Because there is little madness in the design, you can make a box without any gaps. Porous, bubble-like independent tissue is densely packed, and when it is humid, it absorbs moisture, and when it dries, it exhales moisture and adjusts the humidity to breathe. In addition, it contains ingredients such as tannin, paulonin, and sesamin, which suppress the generation of insects and mold. Because it contains a lot of antiseptic tannins, paulownia is hard to rot and can be used for a long time. Paulownia is the lightest wood in Japan. Porous, bubble-like independent tissue is densely packed, hardly affected by outside air, and excellent in heat retention and heat insulation. In hot and humid Japan, paulownia has long been used as a chest for putting on kimono and gift boxes. One of the attractions is that the grain is beautiful and you can enjoy the secular change just like leather products when used carefully. ● What is kirihaco? Masuda Tung Hakoten has been manufacturing paulownia boxes for 90 years in Koga City, Fukuoka Prefecture. We are researching every day so that you can select the type of paulownia and how to assemble it according to the purpose of the box. We have developed and proposed original processing methods to make beautiful boxes and attractive boxes. As part of the manufacturing process, the concept of “paulownia box for daily life” was adopted, and product development was carried out with the owner of the Fukuoka lifestyle tool store as the [kirihaco project].
