Chirashi Business Card Case

£85

A beautiful business card case hand crafted in Kakunodate, a former samurai town in today’s Akita Prefecture, famous for its samurai traditions and hundreds of weeping cherry trees.

It’s a stunning example of kabazaiku (樺細工), the traditional Japanese art of fashioning woodworks out of the bark of a cherry tree, which began as a secondary vocation for samurai in the town over 200 years ago. These skills and techniques have been passed on artisan to artisan through the generations.

The case is crafted from precious chirashi bark, close to the bark’s raw appearance and makes each piece one-of-a-kind.

Comes gift boxed.


Holds around 20 standard-sized business cards. Wipe clean with a soft dry cloth.

Presented wrapped in a gift box and tissue paper.
