With the concept of “making yuzen accessible and usable”,
this eyeglass case was carefully crafted
by a traditional yuzen craftsman
of hand-painted yuzen who also works on obi belts and kimonos.
The case is light and small enough to fit in a bag,
and the inside of the case is made of a cushion material
to cover glasses gently.
The cylindrical shape of the case makes it
easy to hold and put in and out.
By decorating the luxurious hand-painted yuzen border pattern
with symbolic patterns of Takashi Ogura, a traditional craftsman,
the case appeals to those who seek novelty in Japanese culture
as well as to those overseas travelers
who are interested in traditional Japanese crafts
and prefer “wa” that matches with modern lifestyle.
