Amanatto is a Japanese confectionery that is made from natural ingredients cooked simply with sugar.

Illustrator Masaki Higuchi draw a fine botanical illustrations of those ingredients with line drawings. The beans, nuts, etc., are drawn thoroughly and realistically. We made a gradiated colors and repetition patterns using his drawings, to express natural ingredients. The item name and some information are placed in the child-holding frame, which is a traditional Japanese design. We designed these packages with Japanese gorgeousness and expressing the goodness of the ingredients.
