Card Case - Brown

$135.00

This business card holder is carefully handcrafted by skilled craftsmen in Japan using dead stock leather that was left unused in a Japanese tannery factory. The inside is covered with a unique kimono fabric. The gorgeous kimono fabric stands out because it is hidden from view from the outside.

It is made with great attention to detail, not just the materials, but also the tailoring and functionality.

- Fukin Machi

``Fukin gusset'' is a unique Japanese traditional technique that is not found overseas, and its biggest feature is that although it has a gusset, it has almost no thickness and is extremely comfortable to use . Despite being thin, it can hold over 20 thick business cards.

Common gussets are valley folds, but fukin gussets are mountain folds. Since the cards inside will not get caught, you can take them 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. This technique involves folding fine and even pleats into the excess portion of the leather that meets the edges at right angles . 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 trowel that radiates heat a few millimeters from the tip of the hem, it improves the adhesion of the hem, and at the same time, the sharp line that runs right next to the stitching sharpens the look of the leather item.


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