Marking Pins with Flower colored Gold, Silver and Bronze

Flower marking pins colored gold, silver and bronze, each made from original molds produced by artisans. The metal parts are produced by cutting out a mold from wax, then taking a rubber cast from it. Lighter than the brass casts that used to be commonplace, and able to produce more intricate expressions, this method was also used for things like the buttons on knit cardigans and, since the middle of 1900’s, has decorated the clothes of working people.

Ukigami Memo Pad with 2.5mm Grid Paper

This Note pad opens f lat to 180°, and uses ukigami, a type of Echizen washipaper produced with unique methods, for its front cover. Because the center of the book doesn’t rise up when open, it provides a sensation just like writing on a f lat sheet of paper. This “f lat opening” book binding is an original patented technology of Nakamura Printing Company, founded in Asakusa in 1938. The veteran craftsmen of Tokyo’s Shitamachi area finally perfected this notebook after many hundreds of prototypes.
