Product & Story

Mini Colored Pencils in Ukigami Box

Six miniature colored pencils are tucked neatly into an exquisite keepsake box made with Ukigami, embossed washi paper. The stylish sewing-pin design comes in six vibrant colors, and the box itself can be reused as a case for business cards, accessories, sewing notions, and more.

Pencils are manufactured by Camel Pencil Mfg., one of the oldest and most respected pencil manufacturers in Japan, having been founded in 1939 in Tokyo’s Arakawa Ward.

Highly pigmented and comfortable in the hand, pencils come in Cohana’s signature five colors plus black. A matching color thread is wound on the end of each pencil.

The wooden shaft, which gently fits in your hand, is wrapped with a thread of the same color as the lead. It is designed to make handcrafting and sketching fun.

Both practical and adorable, this mini pencil set is perfect for taking on-the-go so you never miss a thought, a sketch, or a design. Excellent when paired with the Ukigami Memo Pad (2.5 mm Grid).
