Paulownia wood is the traditional choice for storage boxes in Japan, as it regulates humidity well, protecting the contents from damp. The trees are quick growing - they say that in the old days, a family would plant one when a daughter was born, and harvest it for timber to make her wardrobe when she left the house to marry.
