Ruri Confectionery Box

Large 51,000 yen ( tax inc.)
Small 49,000 yen ( tax inc.)

Just as a Japanese confectionery store would carefully place and package wagashi in a showcase, we wanted to make sure that the wagashi we bought would be served with care and thoughtfulness right up to the very end, which is why we asked a paulownia wood case workshop in Fukui Prefecture to create the Ruri Confectionery Box. The word “ruri” means “glass. In the tea ceremony, food baskets and other containers with lids are used as confectionery containers, but these provide the enjoyment of a time difference in that the contents can be seen only after the lid is opened in front of you. On the other hand, this one is skeletal from the time it is brought to you, so you can see what is inside. This creates a sense of anticipation, as if you were actually taking out a gem in a glass case and looking at it directly. The action of opening it horizontally, the feeling and sound of the air at the moment of opening, which is unique to the elaborate paulownia case. It not only looks cool, but also gives a sense of cleanliness and quality. It can be played with in various ways depending on the user, and you can even put flowers or bonsai inside.
