Description:
Lightweight 100% cotton pouches made by the master craftspeople of Harayama Textile. Each pouch are designed with the ancient patterns and colors found in Aizu folk clothing dating back centuries.

Add a stylish touch to your pencil case.

Measurements:
7" x 3" x 3"

History: 
The origin of Aizu Cotton dates back 400 years ago, from Japan's Tensho period. This type of cotton remained popular across Japan until the Showa period (1920's onward) when it almost completely died out, and now just Harayama Textile and 1 other company in Japan shoulder the responsibility and tradition of producing Aizu cotton. Aizu fabric is plain woven cotton, which means that the thread is woven at right angles so it's highly resistant to shrinkage. For this characteristic, it's been used for work clothing and bags for centuries. Harayama was established in 2015 to keep the tradition of Aizu cotton alive, and they are now the only company in Japan that handles both the dyeing and weaving of Aizu cotton from start to finish.

 

Materials:
100% Aizu Cotton

Variation: 
Each pouch is handmade so there is variation throughout the pouch. The cotton will soften with washing and with use.
