Traditionally, “Kiri” paulownia wood is one of the most reliable materials used for preserving clothing or food in Japan.

Rich in tannin and sesamin, paulownia wood has natural antiseptic and insect repelling properties. The wood fiber is porous, resulting in an almost magical lightweight quality.

Already representing the perfect material for rice storage, Kiri wood also offers a natural control of moisture to its long list of beneficial properties. As such, this stunningly simple yet elegantly designed AZMAYA “Kiri” Rice Storage box protects grains and rice from insect damage or molds, a common problem in Japanese kitchens suffering from high humidity and dramatic seasonal shifts of climate.

Indicative of the fine Kasukabe City, Saitama Prefecture craftsmanship, known for their production of “Kiri” wood products, not a single nail, fastener, hinge or metal fitting has been used in the construction of this paulownia wood rice storage box.

A sublimely fitted top lid, replete with an effortlessly sliding access panel for quick scoops of rice (wood scoop included), is removable for when the box requires refilling or a seasonal cleaning.

Includes matching wooden scoop. 

Available in 5kg and 10kg capacities.
