This is Not Your Average Lunchbox

Innovators & Creators, Product Innovation
The Bento is a single-portion takeout or homemade meal that is very common in Japanese cuisine. Traditionally, it is a box-shaped container that is filled with rice, fish or meat, with pickled or cooked vegetables.

There are different types of Bento Boxes that are elaborately and creatively arranged. The first style is the “kyaraben”, which are usually decorated to look like popular characters from Japanese cartoons, comic books or video games.

Another type of type of Bento Box is the “oekakiben”” which means the “picture bento”. This style is decorated to look like people, animals, buildings, etc.

Well, The Dieline has posted a little ‘behind the scenes’ to share the creative process of making a very creative topper for a variety of wines- take a look!
