Native to Japan, hinoki cypress wood is valued for its pleasing, lemony fresh scent and natural anti-bacterial properties. Used to construct this tissue box, the pale wood creates a welcome alternative to paper tissue boxes with busy graphic treatments. The wood used for the box is responsibly harvested from the thinning of managed natural forests in Japan. The subtle dark wood accents at the corners are made of black walnut and lend a polished, tailored appearance. The box its directly over most standard square paper tissue boxes, lending a natural, spa-like appeal to the bathroom.
