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.

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.

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.
