Tea boxes of any size The height of the lid and the "san" is well-balanced in the height of the entire box. It is designed so that the material of the box itself is also carefully selected.

Tea box is a culture. And in order to preserve the culture, we have a factory in Kawane, which is the local area, based on the idea that it is essential that the local area loses money and the local area becomes healthy. Using thinned cedar wood cut from a local mountain doing. The cedar used by Maeda Kobo is generally over 30 years old. Since cedar has a light scent, it does not easily transfer odors and has an antifungal effect. increase. In addition, since sap does not easily come out and it is easy to process, it has come to be used as a material for tea boxes for storing delicate tea leaves.

I cut this cedar tree into parts for a tea box, but this work is not easy. It is necessary to imagine the parts of the tea box and cut it out while looking at the grain and habit of the wood. It takes about 10 years to cultivate the eyes It is said that.

In addition, in order to protect the seams of the wooden boards and the boundary between the box and the galvanized iron, we will apply "meshing" to wrap Japanese paper around the key points.
