SUMIDA-KU, Japan - Sept. 12, 2021 - PRLog -- This series features inkjet printing of famous paintings by Hokusai Katsushika, who was born in Sumida, Tokyo, on the back of the wallet (cowhide). In the past, we have printed "Bijinga" and "Ryogoku Bridge" on our products.

This time, a new product printed with "Kanagawa Okinamiura", one of the 36 Views of Mount Fuji that many people imagine when they hear the word "Ukiyoe", will be available for pre-sale on Makuake, Cloudfunding site in japan.

This wallet demonstrates the handiwork of a skilled leather craftsman. If you look closely at the edges of this wallet, you will see that the leather has been folded and sewn one by one. This process is called "heli-agashi," which in itself requires a lot of skill, but sewing the wallet with the heli-agashi in place without the masterpiece shifting requires a high level of skill.

As a return gift, we will send you a long wallet, a business card case, and a passcase from the new "Iki Hokusai" series, "Kanagawa Oki Naniwura". The front is a simple color that is easy to use on a daily basis, while the back is decorated with Hokusai's famous paintings in vivid colors with the texture of Japanese paper.
