Aria" is as light as air


Aria" means "Air" in Italian. It also means lyrical solo singing in opera and religious music.
It is thin, light, and like air, you forget it even exists. And yet, it is beautiful and full of originality.

Aria " is made of thin leather with a "solid" (glued all over) surface.
It takes a great deal of
experience and skill to create two thin pieces of leather that look like a single piece, even when folded and bent, without lifting or flexing.

Wrapping" the heart, Japanese beauty

Hospitality of wrapping an important business card in a single piece of leather

In Japan, there is a culture of carefully wrapping important things, such as furoshiki used for gifts, fukusas, and noshibukuro.
We designed this business card case based on this traditional Japanese aesthetic of wrapping.
No strings, metal fittings, belts, or other clasps are used. Just high-quality leather folded over beautifully like origami to wrap your precious business cards.

In Japan, business cards are treated with the utmost respect.
Tsutsumu®" is a business item that conveys your own dignity and sensitivity as well as the culture of Japanese hospitality to others.

tsutsumuを解く With all the cards completely unwrapped

Unwrapping gestures that show consideration for the other person

Careful wrapping also shows care and thoughtfulness in the act of unwrapping. In business situations, it is important not to keep the other party waiting.
Tsutsumu®" has no clasp, so it can be opened quickly and business cards can be taken out smoothly.
The smooth leather inside also allows business cards to glide easily and stress-free.
At first it is difficult to tell the top and bottom sides apart, but the wax is quickly removed from the lid side, which is often touched by hands, and the more you use it, the easier it becomes to tell the difference.

tsutsumuを使う Although small, it can hold 25 regular business cards.

Neat and beautiful

Logo-free exterior, exquisite details, sharp and symmetrical design.
Understated, neat beauty expresses your elegance.

Foschia" is the Italian word for "fog. The outer leather is vegetable-tanned double shoulder with white wax treatment, and has a look like a morning mist. The more it is used, the more it rubs and permeates, revealing a translucent look.

The tanning material used is the fruit of the tara tree, a legume native to South America.
It is rare and expensive, but it has the lightest color and lightfastness among vegetable tannins. Normally pigments are used for light-colored leather, but since the leather can be tanned whiter, beautiful colors can be achieved using only dyes.

The interior is smooth leather with a fine silver surface. When opened, it creates a beautiful gradation with the exterior.

About Aging

The shoulder is also an area that contains many rose scars, uneven colors, bloodstains, and tigers (wrinkles), allowing the wearer to enjoy the unique expression of natural leather.

Since it contains sufficient oil and wax, it does not require any special maintenance.
The surface is delicate and prone to stains and scratches, but if you handle it well and use it often, the color and luster will deepen and it will become more familiar to you.

SYRINX products are made of carefully selected materials. Please handle with care for long-lasting use.
Due to the finish that brings out the texture of the raw hides, there may be scratches, uneven coloring, stains, or wrinkles on the surface. Please note that due to the delicate surface, there is a possibility that slight scratches, press marks, and abrasions may be found during the manufacturing process.

White Wax Leather Care Instructions

No oil care is required for products just received. This leather contains sufficient oil inside the leather. Also, the white component on the surface is wax, which will penetrate into the leather and increase its waterproof effect as it is used. It also becomes transparent and shiny.

If the surface becomes dry after prolonged use, we recommend using a wax made from wax or oil to clean the surface.

In addition, it is very delicate to water and easily deformed by moisture, so we recommend the use of a fluorine-based waterproofing spray. (However, please use at your own risk.)

The following page explains how to spray with pictures.
Waterproof Spray Method

    Because tanned leather is dyed and finished, its surface is very delicate and easily scratched. However, if the leather is used with care, scratches and stains will gradually become a part of its texture. Daily wiping with a soft cloth and brushing are recommended, but the best maintenance is to use the leather and give it the proper amount of stimulation.

    Other points to note

    • Size may change slightly with use.
    • Color fading may occur. Please be careful not to combine with light-colored clothing.
    • Color and texture may vary depending on the lot and part.
    • Due to changes in temperature and other factors, oil and fat components may appear white on the surface. It can be removed by lightly rubbing the surface.
    • When storing the product for a long period of time, please air dry the product regularly with a soft cloth to prevent mold from forming.
    • The contents should not be left in place for long periods of time, but should be removed periodically to allow airflow inside.
    • The color of the product may look slightly different from the actual color of the product depending on the monitor environment.
