Shigaraki ware pottery with a button motif, made by Meizan Gama, a ceramics manufacturer founded in 1622 in Koka, Shiga Prefecture. Shigaraki ware is distinguished by its earthy charm, which conveys a sense of simplicity and robustness. Its profoundly fascinating look has a connection with the spirit of "wabi-sabi" (the beauty of natural imperfection), and it has produced countless masterpiece tea utensils. The skilled craftspeople at Meizan Gama continue to create works with warmth, with the living thing that is the earth firmly within their view. Great care has been put into the application of the glaze and the choice and use of firing methods, so that you can feel the warmth of both the earth and humanity emanate from within these small buttons. Magnets are inserted in the buttons, allowing you to use these items as small pin cushions when you want to give your needles a rest. They can also be used as paperclip holders or decorative magnets, or even enjoyed as interior ornaments or stationery items that add color to your living space.

Himeji Leather Pouch Green
Himeji white leather is also called Shironameshi that is good for people and the environment, tanned only with the use of ingredients provided by nature, and no chemicals. Leather tanned this way is given a beautiful white finish with a fine texture. The white leather can then be dyed with beautiful colors, and this is what sets shironameshi leather apart. Yoshikawa Leather, which was established in Tatsuno, Hyogo Prefecture in 1955 and specializes in white leather, is a tannery* that began by making white leather for volleyballs. With a belief in making leather without regrets, Yoshikawa Leather produces beautiful leather, which is then dyed in striking Cohana colors. These leather pouches will ease their way into your heart, with a charm that grows the more you use them. Reminiscent of plump flower buds, their shape spreads out like a flower in bloom when you loosen the string, allowing you to use these pouches as accessory cases. Their size makes them perfect forholding sewing tools and accessories, and convenient for carrying.
