Description from Design Within Reach
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 Tissue Box is a responsibly harvested by-product of forest thinning, which is required to maintain healthy growth. The Tissue Box accommodates a standard long box of tissues, removed from the cardboard package. The cutout on the side lets you see when tissues are low. Also available is the Hinoki Tissue Box Cover – Cube. For more than 30 years, Designer Yoko Ueno Lewis has been creating original products shaped by practical materials and an artistic eye. Made in Japan.
Materials: Japanese Hinoki cypress wood.
