MOTTAINAI FUMIKOU

MOTTAINAI FUMIKOU

In the height of classical Japan the aristocracy would finely shave a fragrant tree, the Koboku, and lace it in Japanese paper. By adding this to their correspondence they added emotions and thoughts that cannot be conveyed through writing alone. This is called FUMIKOU.

MOTTAINAI FUMIKOU is pretty type of FUMIKOU made using loose parts.
This product was created based on the ideal of carefully using whole pieces of cloth from edge to edge.
