The membrane wall of the cell is thin and the air layer inside is large, so it is softer and more resilient than other wood. Wood itself has some resilience, but paulownia has a high ability. Has the power to restore even a few scratches and dents. It is made of porous, bubble-like independent structures that are not affected by outside air, and has excellent heat insulation and heat insulation properties. Since paulownia has a very small shrinkage rate, it is a timber that can be refined with little deviation or cracking in the design and has little dimensional change. Because there is little madness in the design, you can make a box without any gaps. In hot and humid Japan, paulownia has long been used as a chest for putting on kimono and gift boxes. It is one of the attractions that you can enjoy the secular change just like leather products, with beautiful grain and careful use. ● What is kirihaco? Masuda Tung Hakoten has been manufacturing paulownia boxes for 90 years in Koga City, Fukuoka Prefecture. We are researching every day so that you can select the type of paulownia and how to assemble it according to the purpose of the box. We have developed and proposed original processing methods to make beautiful boxes and attractive boxes. As part of the manufacturing process, the concept of “Kiri Box for Living” was developed and the product development was carried out with the owner of the Fukuoka lifestyle tool store as the [kirihaco project].
