The beauty of Japan that wraps your heart
In Japan, there is a culture of carefully wrapping important things such as furoshiki, fukusa, and shugi-bukuro used for gifts. As for clothes, unlike clothes with holes in the bag, Japanese clothes wrapped in cloth can be said to wrap the body. I designed the business card holder from this traditional Japanese aesthetic sense of "wrapping".
No fasteners such as threads, metal fittings or belts are used. A piece of high-quality leather is folded beautifully like origami to wrap an important business card.
An act of caring for the other person
If it is carefully wrapped, you can put consideration and compassion for the other person in the action you solve. In the business scene, the first priority should be not to wait according to the other party and to be able to take out the business card smoothly with the minimum movement.
Taking advantage of the fact that "TSUTSUMU" has no fasteners, it can be opened quickly and the business card can be taken out smoothly.
In addition, it is unsophisticated that the brand name stands out when inserting a business card. The top and bottom of the appearance are difficult to see, but the emblem is gently engraved on the hidden part of the lid. Once the leather is familiar, you can feel the semi-circular notch for taking out the business card from the top of the lid, so you can take out the business card smartly while looking at the other person without looking down.
Luxury and formal leather charm and neat design
For a formal finish, thinly strained leather is preferred for business card holders. However, as you use it often, you lose its beauty at the time of purchase.
"Because it is an important business card, let's wrap it in the best material."
The leather used for TSUTSUMU has a soft and sticky feel that makes you want to touch it all the time. The more you use it, the more beautiful and tasty it will change.
Business card holders made of thick leather tend to be large in size and have a casual atmosphere, but TSUTSUMU has no stitches, so there is no waste in size and the finish is almost the size of a business card. In addition, the perfectly symmetric and neat design creates a formal atmosphere.
With exceptional leather and neat design, it has a luxurious yet formal appearance.

Italian vacetta leather
"Vacetta manufacturing method" that has been handed down in Tuscany, Italy since the beginning of the 9th century. This leather is tanned with natural tree tannins and carefully soaked with oil. The biggest feature of Vacetta leather is that it mainly uses neatsfoot oil in the greasing process, and it has a unique suppleness. Neatsfoot oil does not easily penetrate into leather, and it takes time to penetrate deep into the fibers. However, once it penetrates, it is hard to come off, and you can enjoy the moisturized and glossy leather quality almost permanently.
With its sticky smoothness, it is beautifully deepened in color and stands out among the many Italian leathers.
Deepening color gloss and aging
Vivid and transparent coloring is done with dyes only. Scratches and stains are not hidden by embossing or pigments, so they remain as they are. However, the fact that you can enjoy the texture of raw leather as it is is proof that it is the highest quality natural leather. Please accept the scratches and stains as a unique personality.
The more you use the dyed leather, the deeper the color becomes and you can enjoy aging. When it comes to aging, there is no leather to the right of Vacetta leather. It is beautiful and deepens the color in a short time.
Since it is a leather that grows together, it is also ideal as a gift for new beginnings such as admission, promotion, and employment.
"Business" aging example
The leather used for "Business" is oil nubuck with brushed silver surface (front side). It is velvety and soft to the touch, and contains a lot of oil, so aging progresses very quickly. The more you use it, the more calm the brushing becomes, the more glossy it becomes, and the deeper the color becomes.
Nero (black) : Black like matte ink. The gloss gradually increases and the black becomes deeper.
Giungla : Deep dark olives become even deeper in color.
Bruciato (dark brown) : Dark brown becomes darker as you use it.
Cammello : Change to a beautiful candy color.
No need for oil care
I think that general leather has a glossy surface from the beginning. However, the oil on the surface volatilizes over time, loses its luster, and becomes dry. That's why regular oil care is essential.
This leather has a matte look. This is because even if you do not apply oil to the surface, the oil will soak into the fibers and the leather will not dry out. The more you use it, the more oil contained inside will seep out from the pores and coat the epidermis to make it glossy. Therefore, no oil care is required.
Please note that adding ready-made leather oil may cause the leather to become too oily and too soft.
The best maintenance is to do nothing and give the leather a proper stimulus.
Since it is not coated, the surface is soft and easily scratched, but some scratches will heal naturally if you rub it with your finger. Even deep scratches become familiar with aging and change to a leather texture.
About white powder
Since the leather is very oily, the oil component that has exuded from the pores may turn into white powder depending on the temperature, humidity, and ventilation conditions.
This is the same phenomenon as bloom of bridle leather, and it is not a defect of the product.
It is especially noticeable in winter and when the temperature is low, and it may look like mold at first glance, but it can be easily wiped off with a soft cloth. (Parts that are difficult to remove, such as stitches, disappear when warmed)
These symptoms are one of the good properties of oily leather. Thank you for your understanding.
The cows that are the source of this leather are grazing and bred so that they can grow healthy without stress. This leather has a delicate finish so that you can enjoy the original charm of high-quality leather. Therefore, "living proof (natural mark)" such as wrinkles and scratch marks that originally existed may be engraved. The Natural Mark is a proof of good quality natural leather, and as you use it, it becomes the unique taste of the product.
Rose wound / bloodline
It is a trace of a small scratch or insect bite when bumping or fighting. The more you grow up in an environment closer to nature, the more you grow. Depth, length, and size vary depending on the individual.
It is often found after blood vessels, especially on the floor.
It is a trace of deep wrinkles that are often seen from around the neck to along the spine. Italian leather is popular because it is said that the more tigers there are, the more beautiful it is. The fiber density around the spine is the highest, and there is no problem with strength.
Color unevenness may occur due to differences in fiber density. Due to the unevenness of the leather quality, it is unavoidable as long as the leather is a natural material.
Please note that it is the one and only individuality of leather.
If SYRINX products are used for their original purpose within the bounds of common sense, there is a one-year warranty period from the date of purchase regarding material and structural defects.
