bento zen was recently featured in two foreign magazines!
the first is skoda magazine, a belgian publication advertising the czech car company. since this article is in french, i can pretty much read it — it’s a general article about bento-making, and how much care japanese moms put into these creations for their kids.
the second publication is super cool. flow magazine is a netherlands-based crafting and lifestyle magazine, focused in particular on paper crafts. the magazine is currently only published in dutch, and subscribers get cool bonuses with every hard-copy issue (such as pull-out mini journals and stickers). the website has some cool downloadable templates for labels and stuff, too! if any dutch speakers read this site and wouldn’t mind sending me a basic translation of the article, i’d love to know what it says!
