SIWA Long Wallet
The SIWA Long Wallet is an orthodox wallet that makes the most of the characteristics of the new Japanese paper, Naoron, to smartly store and retrieve bills, cards, and coins in an organized manner. The zippered pocket can hold coins as well as banknotes and cards. It is a standard "long wallet".
There are two pockets for credit cards. In addition to the banknote compartment, the large zippered coin case opens wide to give you a good view of the interior. As with other SIWA items, the beautiful bag stitching is a key feature. Weighing only 20 grams, it boasts of being surprisingly light, less than 1/3 of a leather wallet.

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".
