*Because it is made of natural materials, each item has its individual grain.
With a spiritual inspiration, and made by hand using time-honoured methods of 18th century colonial American Shaker communities, the deep rooted form-meets-function philosophy of these Oval Boxes results in an essential object for everyday living.
The Shakers originally used the oval boxes to store sewing supplies & dried goods. Nowadays, the beautiful curved shape offers an ideal vessel for display in home or office, allowing you to store treasured essential items in plain sight.
Japanese craftsman & designer Masashi Ifuji specializes in creating simple but functional wooden objects, utilizing traditional techniques and minimal forms. Based out of Matsumoto, Nagano, Ifuji is best known for his clean and precise design approach allowing users to appreciate the moments of stillness found in daily life; offering a small piece of calm retreat amid our busy day to day.
The exterior is finished in a flaxseed oil-based coating, while the interior remains unfinished in order to take advantage of the natural humidity control of the wood. For this reason, wet or moist items should not be stored in these boxes, as dirt or stains may remain.
Please avoid direct sunlight or places where there is an extreme temperature difference. Wipe with a dry cloth to clean and maintain its shine.
*Because it uses natural materials, each grain shows a different look. In some cases, the grain may express a strong individuality.
