Wooden Product Lunch Box Kuro-Urushi

“Refined, sophisticated wooden feature is enough to sense the passion and craftsmanship needed to produce it.”
Now that I’m looking back, lunch box is something more personal than you may think. Yes, lunch box is what you pack your daily lunch in. But I think it is that simple act of repeating the exercise daily is what makes it so special… or so I think now. My point? Know what your taste is and find a lunch box that physically lasts so that it becomes a part of your good memory in the future.
When moving out of my parent’s house, wanted to choose dishes and tableware that I may be able to use at my new place. My mother was always good at keeping good inventory on things. On the kitchen counter were dishes of all sizes, chopsticks, cutlery basket, etc. and there it was -my lunch box used during 7 years of studying. It was a double tiered lunch box, pink lid with faces of pigs drawn on it. It had a matching rubber band to hold the double tier together. Memorable moments and funny stories came back to me. Surprisingly, my mother also had many stories to share about a simple lunch box because she was the one who packed lunch for me every day.
Because you use the same lunch box every day, people around you also tend to remember what kind of lunch box you had in the past. Being a grown-up now, like buying a pen or a bag, my lunch box would look like the Kuro-Urushi lunch box if I were to bring lunch every day. Refined, sophisticated wooden feature is enough to sense the passion and craftsmanship needed to produce it. I would choose black because my fashion is based on monotonous tones. Having a stylish lunch box, it would definitely catch someone’s eyes and also become an item that triggers your memory.
