Japanese Hinoki cypress is prized for its bacteria-resistant resin that prevents mildew and withstands humidity. This wood is highly rot resistant and its natural lemon scent is used in aromatherapy to reduce stress. Further encouraging a tranquil state is the knowledge that the wood used to make the Hinoki Tray is a responsibly harvested by-product of forest thinning, which is required to maintain healthy growth. For more than 30 years, Designer Yoko Ueno Lewis has been creating original products shaped by practical materials and an artistic eye.
