‘Chabako’ are traditional Japanese wooden cedar boxes dating from the late Edo period, originally used for the storage and transportation of Japanese tea. Numerous innovative design features such as a tin-lined interior makes them moisture-proof, insect-proof, and oxidation-resistant – an ideal storage box for more than just tea. These quality sustainable boxes deserve a fresh look today.
