We’re not sure how much the little cardboard tissue box does to keep tissues germ and dust free, but we do know it’s not usually pretty. While this idea might not be for everyone, we thought it was neat enough, especially during hay fever season when we go through a box like nothing.

Made of heavy chromium-plated brass, kazan means volcano in Japanese, a reference to how the tissue looks like a plume of smoke emanating from an active caldera.
