A coin purse made perfect for change, cash, and other small finds.
The Siwa series was created by the Japanese paper (washi) maker, Onao and industrial designer Naoto Fukasawa. Located in Ichikawamisato, Yamanashi.
Fukasawa discerned that the special texture of Naoron, a hard-to-tear paper developed by Onao, emerged when the paper was crumpled, and suggested designs for everyday goods that harnessed this. The name, Siwa is both a reversing of the characters in the word washi (wasi), and a word meaning, crinkle in Japanese.
As with leather goods, these washi products are lovingly, individually crafted.
