Karamatsu - Sola Cube

Regular price $48 Unit price  per 

Description:
The name 'Karamatsu' comes from the way in which its leaves are attached, resembling a pine tree or 'Matsu', in the Chinese-style of painting ('Kara-e').  The pine cone opens itself up when dry, allowing the seeds in between its folds to fly away and become new growths.

Botanical essence: Unwavering spirit

Variation:
The packaged plant inside is sourced from nature so there will always be variation in size, color and shape.  The packaged plant may or may not look exactly like the plant shown in the photo.  Each solo cube is hand crafted so there may be slight bubbles or powder like material in the acrylic, but these are not considered defects.

History:
Since 2014, Usagi No Nedoko of Kyoto, Japan has made it their mission to "communicating the beauty of nature" by perfecting the acrylic arts.

Measurement:
1.6'' x 1.6'' cube

Materials:
Acrylic resin (cube) Karamatsu (specimen inside)

Care Instructions:
To clean, please wipe with a soft cloth.  Thin cracks may appear if cleaned with chemical solutions such as thinner or alcohol.  Keep away from directly sunlight or high temperature as acrylic will discolor or crack in these conditions.

Return Policy / Shipping Policy:
Returns must be made within 2 weeks in original, unused condition with all packaging for either 1. Store credit for the full amount or 2. Refund - minus a 20% restocking fee.  Tortoise does not cover the cost of return shipping or the cost of re-shipping an exchange, and the cost of shipping for returns and exchanges is the responsibility of the customer.
