Omotenashi: 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, fukusa, 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 a sheet of high quality leather folded over beautifully like origami to wrap an important business card.

In Japan, business cards are treated with the utmost respect as the recipient's share of the business card.
Tsutsumu®, which carefully wraps important business cards, is a business item that conveys your own dignity and sensitivity as well as the culture of Japanese hospitality to others.

Unwrapping and solving manners to take care of others

tsutsumuを開く

Careful wrapping shows care and consideration for the recipient, as does the act of unwrapping. In business situations, the priority is to keep the recipient waiting and to allow smooth access to business cards with a minimum of movement.
Tsutsumu®" has no clasp, so it can be opened quickly and business cards can be taken out smoothly.
Once you get used to the leather, you can feel the cutout for taking out business cards from the top of the lid, so you can take them out smartly without looking down and looking at the person you are dealing with.

Attractive leather and neat design

tsutsumuの中心

Wrap your business card in the best material because it's important."
The leather used for Tsutsumu® is so soft and absorbent to the touch that you will want to keep touching it. The original thickness of about 2mm is used, and the more it is used, the more beautifully and tastefully it changes.
It is also perfectly symmetrical and neatly designed, giving it a formal look.

Small business card case

With no stitching, the size is completely lean, just the thickness of the leather added to the business card.

Liscio

"Liscio" means "smooth" in Italian. The leather used in this series is "Vacetta leather", which 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 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 forever.
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.

Aging example

Smooth and sticky texture. There is a sense of transparency that shows the expression of the raw leather. The more you use it, the deeper the color and luster.

Camel Camel : The color of camel hair. Bright yellowish brown.
Chestnut Chestnut : Maroon. Reddish brown.
Teal Teal : The color of the duck's face. The blue-green color gradually becomes darker.
Black Black : From a matte look to a glossy black.

No need for oil care

The oil that has soaked into the fibers oozes out from the pores as it is used, coating the surface and giving it a glossy appearance. 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.

* A delicate finish is applied so that you can enjoy the original charm of high-quality leather. Therefore, there is a possibility that natural marks such as wrinkles and scratches that originally existed may appear.

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. Also, please note that due to the delicate surface, there is a possibility that slight scratches, press marks, abrasions, etc. may be found during the manufacturing process.

Care of the vacchetta leather

No oil care is required for products just received. Vachetta leather contains sufficient oil inside the leather. When the surface of the leather is irritated, the oil contained inside seeps out from the pores and coats the epidermis, making it shiny. It also increases the waterproofing effect. Adding ready-made leather oil to the leather may cause it to become too soft due to excess oil.


The basic maintenance is to wipe dry. Use a soft cloth or leather brush.

If the surface becomes dry after prolonged use, we recommend using a wax with wax and oil as its ingredients.

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

Please refer to the following page for the spraying instructions 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.
