History:
Saito Wood first established itself in 1950 in the town of Kawanecho in Shizuoka Prefecture.  This Saito Wood wastebasket is created by molding plywood to form a cylindrical shape. The product’s origins date back to the Second World War when there was a metal shortage. Saito Wood founder Isamu Saito was involved in research by the Japanese army into ways of making tanks for airplane fuel using wood. Saito later passed on techniques that he cultivated during his time in the army, techniques that live on in each and every Saito Wood product.

Care Instructions:
Wipe clean with firmly wrung towel, and then dried immediately with a separate dry cloth.  Apply wood oil as desired.  Wood will mold or discolor if left wet or damp.  Extended direct contact with sunlight may change the color of the wood.  Due to the natural material of this bin, change in color and appearance over time is natural way of developing patina.
