Tiffin tradition

History & Tradition

The Tiffin has been around for centuries and has its roots in India, it is not just a lunch box, it is a whole vibe, a lifestyle.

Picture this: In ancient times, our ancestors were working hard in bustling cities like Mumbai and Pune, and they needed something great to take their homemade treats to work or school. That's where the Dabba lunch box comes in - beautifully designed, stainless steel, and oh so functional.

But wait, it gets even cooler! The term "dabba" literally means "box" in Hindi, and these cuties are stacked with compartments, keeping those tasty dishes separate and fresh. #MealPrepGoals

The stacking containers are traditionally used for keeping fresh and transporting home-made Indian dishes. In Mumbai alone, 175,000 tiffins are delivered every day by 4,000 tiffin couriers called Dabbawalas. Curious about the whole story? Then we can recommend the film The Lunchbox.


The tiffins (hand)made in India, made of durable stainless steel, are each provided with bohemian designs, so every tiffin is unique.
