I just bought a set of envelops and stationary adorned with the print of morning glory – perfect for summer.

Iyo washi is a type of Japanese paper made with the ancient paper making technique in Aichi Prefecture, Japan.
Morning glories in vivid colors printed on the stationary are adding a refreshing impression.

This summer, I will write letters to my friends using this stationary.

This year, the event 365 Charming Everyday Things, which brought together a years worth (365 items) of made-in-Japan everyday things, was held in Paris and Tokyo.

At the event, 365 different kinds of everyday products were on sale, last but not least of which was the event’s catalog, in the shape of a daily calendar.

I didn’t go to this event but my friend gave me the calendar as a present.
