  • Rice storage box made from Kiri (paulownia wood).

    Containers made of kiri are known for their ability to protect their contents from moisture and repel insects while also being very lightweight. Paulownia is extremely fast growing; up to 20 feet in one year when young. Paulownia is known in Japanese as kiri, specifically referring to P. tomentosa; it is also known as the "princess tree". It was once customary to plant a Paulownia tree when a baby girl was born, and then to make it into a dresser as a wedding present when she married.

    The box is constructed from solid Kiri without the use of nails or screws. The lid can be easily removed for cleaning and a small kiri cup for scooping rice is included.
