You can enjoy building a house with various rooms depending on the installation space and your favorite combination. It is interesting to combine it with the book house to create your own house, or it is cute to use it by itself. If you want to put it inside the book house for storage, the depth matches the size of Book House M. Use it to store small items or items that you don't want to be visible when organizing. Works well as interior storage for bookshelves and desk areas. Ladders / Drop Lid The transparent acrylic lid has a silver foil stamp of a ladder, which is one part of the house design. It can be used to store small items such as stoles, or as a display box since the acrylic allows you to see inside. Some people use it like a canister for storing bread. Mountain-shaped breads and large breads may not fit in the box. If you need to store larger breads, we recommend using the Canister Square L. You can enjoy the Book House in the space you have and in the combination of your choice. ●Material Body: Paulownia Lid: drop lid + acrylic (with silver leaf stamp) ●Size w158mm x d237mm x h158mm ●Handling If you put powder directly into the canister, it can get stuck in the wood grain and interfere with humidity control. It can also clog the lid, making it difficult to close. That's why we recommend placing them in the canister in a bag. If used as a bread case, lay down a kitchen sheet or aluminum foil. Since bread contains a lot of oil, direct contact with paulownia may result in stains. If you put freshly baked bread in the case, it may be deformed by moisture, so be sure to cool it down before putting it in. Paulownia wood absorbs and releases moisture. If you put something with a strong fragrance in it, it will absorb the odor along with the moisture, making it easier to transfer it to the paulownia wood. This product has not been treated to be water resistant, so it is not suitable for cleaning with water or detergent. Please wipe gently with a dry cloth or with a small amount of alcohol. Dried in the shade of a well ventilated room for half a day while the contents are empty, such as at the change of seasons, the moisture absorbed by the paulownia can be released once it is released. Caution This product is not intended to extend the expiration date. It is a product that utilizes the properties of paulownia to preserve the flavor until the end. Remarks This product is handmade from natural wood. Due to the nature of the wood, there may be differences in the actual color and texture, and there may be dents and scratches. Please purchase with your understanding. ●Paulownia characteristics Paulownia wood has a very small shrinkage rate, so there is little dimensional change. This makes it possible to minimize deviations and cracks in the design of precision processing. Therefore, we can make accurate boxes with no gaps. Paulownia wood is porous, made up of dense, bubbly, independent tissue. It regulates humidity by sucking in moisture in humid weather and expelling it when it dries out, as if it were breathing. It also contains ingredients that inhibit the growth of insects and fungus. Due to the high content of tannin, the preservative component, paulownia is resistant to decay and can be used for a long time. Wood has some resilience, but paulownia is more capable of that. It has the ability to restore even a few scratches and dents. In Japan, paulownia has long been used as a chest of drawers for kimonos and as a gift box. One of the charms of paulownia wood is its beautiful grain, and with careful use, it can be enjoyed over time, just like leather goods. ●What is ”kirihaco”? "Masudakiribakoten" has been manufacturing paulownia boxes in Koga City, Fukuoka Prefecture, for about 90 years. They are constantly researching the types of paulownia that can be used for the purpose of the box and the way it is assembled. And to make the box beautiful and attractive, we also develop and propose our own processing methods to make the box beautiful and attractive. As part of this process, we have been developing products as part of the "kirihaco project" with the owner of the "FukuokaSeikatsudoguten". This project is based on the concept of a "paulownia box to incorporate into your life". ●About the trading period We are working in conjunction with our physical store hours of 10:00-19:00 (closed on Mondays).
