Nao Washi Greeting Card Set - attaché


机上で生まれる豊かな時間を提案する「 attaché(アタシェ)」シリーズから名尾和紙で製作したペーパーアイテムが登場しました。

Respect for heritage local creation: Nao Washi Greeting Card Set from attaché, one of our latest brands proposing fulfilling moment on the desk.


Greeting Card Set of hand-crafted paper made in a small mountain village Nao, Saga Prefecture. On the folded card where even the fountain pen ink hardly bleeds, is a watermarked frame which is a typical decoration for washi products. The envelope is made of paper upcycled with scraps of memopads from attaché collection. This paper-making method called Kankonshi, 'revived paper' in Japanese, is realized by the fact that the fiber of paper mulberry, the main material of washi, is long enough to be interwined and perfect to hold the scraps. Feel the touch of Japanese traditional craftsmanship.
