Oval Box Sakura Wood #0
Shaker oval boxes from IFUJI BOXMAKER, a woodcraft tablewares and homewares brand by a Japanese designer and craftsman Masashi Ifuji. Mr Ifuji started making these classic oval boxes (or pantry boxes) in 2005 using the original templates and traditional techniques used by The Shakers which they had used since the 18th century. These boxes are all made by hand, ensuring their unique characteristics - Mr. Ifuji's creations are pure perfection.
Exteriors are finished with flaxseed oil based coating and bees wax, while insides are unfinished.
This listing is for size #0, which is tiny and adorable. It is a good size to keep a few small jewelry pieces.
The Shakers used oval boxes for sewing and quilting notions and for kitchen dry goods and today their uses are unlimited.
To maintain, gently rub the box with soft dry cloth to get the beautiful shine. Keep out of direct sunlight.
