Box made of Yao Washi (Japanese paper)

These boxes are made of Yao Washi paper in Toyama Prefecture in Japan. This place thrived as a town for trade, which was trading silk, medicine, the paper for wrapping medicine and so on. The Yao Washi paper is very strong as it was made not for writing but for the purpose of processing to be used for medicine bag etc.

These boxed are dyed with natura dye, which goes through inside the paper, which means even over time the pattern stay as they are. 

Why not put your favorite items in such a box?
