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.

Tsutsumu® Name Card Cases have received numerous awards and accolades both domestically and internationally.

Smooth texture

Liscio is an Italian word meaning "smooth.
The silver surface is smooth and fine, with natural unevenness in color due to the dye finish, giving it an elegant and tasteful leather-like appearance.

The leather used is vacchetta leather, which has been used in the Tuscany region of Italy since the early 9th century. The leather is tanned with vegetable tannin and soaked with oil slowly, so that you can enjoy its almost permanent moisture and gloss.

The aging process of vacchetta leather stands out among other Italian leathers, and the color and luster of the leather deepens beautifully.

Aging

CamelCamel: The color of camel hair. A light brown with yellowish tints.
ChestnutChestnut: Chestnut. A reddish brown.
Teal Teal : The color of a duck's facial hair. The blue-green color gradually darkens.
Black Black : The leather gradually turns from matte to glossy black.

Natural Mark

Animals are bound to have scratches, stains, insect bites, and other blemishes.
In ordinary leather, these are covered up with pigments and enamels.

However, this leather is dyed to preserve the original texture and feel of the leather. Therefore, the following "living proofs (natural marks)" are often engraved on the leather.

These are the unique characteristics of natural materials and are not defects. However, each person has his or her own taste in the appearance. If you wish, we can replace them. If you wish to exchange the item, please check the exchange section of " Warranty, Repair, Cancellation, and Returns" before proceeding.

Scratches

The cows that are the source of this leather are raised on pasture so that they grow up in a healthy and stress-free environment. Therefore, there are many small scars and insect bites from bumps and fights. These scars are "rose scars. The better the leather grows in a natural environment, the better the quality of the leather, but the more rose scars there will be.

They are scattered throughout the leather and only small parts can be removed if they are avoided. Therefore, they are often found on large parts.

This is a unique expression of natural leather that can never be seen in man-made materials.

Bloodstain

The most common sign that a leather is natural and not man-made is the "blood streak", a pattern unique to natural leather.

These are the traces of blood vessels under the skin. Some are faintly visible on the silver surface, some remain as light wrinkles, and some are clearly visible on the floor.

Tigers.

A long stripe pattern created when the complex shape of an animal is flattened into leather. It is called "tiger" because it looks like the stripes of a tiger.

Tigers are especially common around the neck, and since this leather is shoulder, tigers are frequently seen. The area around the spine, where there are many tigers, has a high fiber density and the leather is of good quality. Flat, wrinkle-free leather is not necessarily better quality.

In Italian leather, tigers are a very popular characteristic that enriches the look of the leather.

Pinholes

Pores and hair follicles remain in the leather and are called "pinholes.
The leather is often seen as a natural expression, especially when the leather is only dyed and has little surface treatment, as in this case.

デザインよし、質よし。

イメージ通りのデザインと質の良さで満足。
革の質は良さそうですがやや柔らかめなので、カバンの中に他の物と一緒に乱雑に入れておくと傷つきやすいです。
単体でカバンの中の携帯用ポケットに入れる程度には大切に扱いたい商品。
デザインには大変満足していますが、欲を言うと開け口の部分以外は開かない構造になっているとなお良いかと思いました。使いやすさと、デザイン面でも接着した方が締まりが出て良いのでは感じました。
極端に言うと、サイコロの展開図的にカットされたレザーが、接着剤や縫製無しに組み合わさっているイメージです。

ペンケースとお揃いで購入しました。

先にペンケースを購入。革の質感と使い勝手の良さがとても気に入り、あとから名刺入れをお揃いのカラーで購入しました。他の方々も書かれていますが、この名刺入れを出すとよく「素敵なデザインですね!」など声をかけられます。私が選んだのは明るい色合いなので特に女性からの評判がいいようです。新社会人になる姪の就職祝いにも、と考え中です。
