Card Case - Brown


This business card holder is carefully handcrafted by skilled craftsmen in Japan using dead stock leather that has been sleeping in a Japanese tannery factory. The interior is lined with a unique kimono fabric. The gorgeous kimono fabric stands out because it is not visible from the outside.

Not only the material, but also the tailoring and function are carefully made.

- Fukin Machi

"Fukin gusset" is a traditional technique unique to Japan that is not seen overseas, and although it has a gusset, it has almost no thickness , and its greatest feature is its excellent usability . Despite its thinness, it can hold more than 20 thick business cards.

Common gussets are valley folds, but Fukin gussets are mountain folds. Since the card inside is not caught, it can be taken out smoothly.

In order to create a Fukin gusset, the leather must be plowed (a process that thins only where the leather is laminated together) and cut precisely, which requires advanced technology and time and effort. Therefore, in today's mainstream of mass production and mass consumption, there are only a few workshops that have passed down the techniques .

- Kikuyose

"Kikuyose" is used to process the edges of the leather. It is a technique that folds finely and evenly on the excess part of the leather that is aligned with the right angle of the edge . It is called Kikuyose because the radial folds look like chrysanthemum flowers.

It is said that you can tell the skill of a craftsman by looking at the Kikuyose, and it is a technique where the craftsman's skills are showcased. The chrysanthemum part of this product is also finely and carefully carved to create a beautiful finish.

- Nene pull

In addition, in the finishing process, we use ``Nenbiki'' . By drawing a line with a heat-dissipating trowel a few millimeters from the tip of the edge, the adhesiveness of the edge is enhanced, and at the same time, the sharp line running right next to the stitching gives a sharper look to the leather item.

This business card case is a small item filled with beautiful and functional Japanese handicrafts.
