SIWA Business Card Case
A new type of Japanese paper, Soft Naoron, is used to maximize the characteristics of the material, allowing you to smartly categorize business cards and other cards for quick retrieval. It has an orthodox shape on the outside, but it has three classification pockets on the inside to keep your business cards and cards in order.
The main compartment can hold about 20 standard business cards. In addition, there are two pockets to manage the business cards you receive. In addition to business cards, it can also hold credit cards, card keys, membership cards, insurance cards, etc. You can also use it as a commuter passbook by inserting your Suica or other transportation cards.
The material used is "Soft Naoron", a new type of Japanese paper that is water-resistant and durable. It is soft to the touch and slim. Weighing only 6 grams, it is about 1/5th the weight of a standard business card case.
As all products are handmade, the color, texture, and specifications may vary slightly.

From a washi-making area with a history of 1,000 years.
Ichikawa Daimon, region of Kai.
This village, blessed with lofty peaks and clear water, has been known as a production center for washi since the Heian period (794-1185). The Shosoin Repository records that hemp, the raw material for paper, was delivered from Kai to the Imperial Court in 756. After that, Ichikawa Daimon's washi was recognized as the official paper of the Takeda clan and the Edo Tokugawa shogunate, and continued to develop.
The history of Onao, a manufacturer of washi, has been in step with the history of the paper industry in Ichikawa Daimon. In recent years, we have incorporated new technology into our tradition to develop paper that can be used for interior decoration and miscellaneous goods.
The new paper developed by Onao is called "Naoron," which combines the excellent properties of washi with durability. Together with Mr. Naoto Fukasawa, an industrial designer from Yamanashi Prefecture, created a product using the new washi developed by Onao. These are the "SIWA".
