Where does the name PINTO THAI came from?

PINTO is the name of a Thai lunch box. Similarly to a normal lunch box or a food plastic box, Pinto is a food container used to store food for lunch at work or school, also for other meals taken to eat out from home. In Thai, pinto has existed for a long time. Pinto is used by all age range people; children, adults and elderly people. Children carry food and/or snacks from home to school by using pinto. Furthermore, a lot of Buddhists also use PINTO boxes when they are going to temple, offering food for monks.
