The Fukiurushi finished black lid and unfinished plain wood box make for a beautiful contrast. The lid is made of the Japanese white-bark magnolia and it is opened and closed by sliding the lid (which has Arihozo, dovetail joints finish) until it meets with the Arihozo. The Japanese white-bark magnolia is a tree whose leaves are used for wrapping food and as a cooking tool of the Japanese dish, Hooba-miso (magnolia leaves grilled with miso and Japanese leeks). It is the tree that is important to the life of Japanese people.
The main body of ATEHAKO is carefully assembled with the parts of Thujopsis dolabrata which is the local wood material in Wajima. Hinoki asunaro (Thujopsis dolabrata) has an element called hinokior which has a healing effect, and you can enjoy a fresh aroma. In addition, it functions as an insecticide and antiseptic, and water resistant.
