The Measuring Tapes made with Yuzen leather is leather which has been dyed using a method created by Mr. Takeguchi, a craftsman in Ikuno-ku, Osaka. He applied Japanese traditional Yuzen dyeing to leather. Special dyes bring out the unevenness on the leather surface, so that users can enjoy the unique expressions of each piece of leather.
The tape measures have been created by the companyHara DOKI, which has specialized in the manufacturing and development of measuring tools since its foundation in 1906 in Odawara, Kanagawa Prefecture. They are made of high quality glass fibres and do not stretch or contract, so that accurate measurement is possible at all times.
The Cohana range of artisan sewing tools is produced by the 65 year old manufacturer of sewing supplies, Kawaguchi, who are also the makers of Nuno Deco. They have sourced small manufacturers across the regions of Japan to create a collection of artisan sewing accessories made by hand. Each product in the range is themed using colours which represent the changing seasons.
The Cohana range is full of beautiful pieces designed as keepsakes of gifts while also being practical tools for craft and sewing fans.
