SIWA (meaning ‘crinkle’ in Japanese) is located in an area of Japan which boasts over 1000 years of making paper. Industrial designer Naoto Fukasawa teamed with washi paper maker ONAO to create these SIWA products. These cases have a padded layer inside, making them a perfect protective case for a laptop or an iPad.
The iPad/Tablet size is great as a general organiser and fits up to 12” laptops.
The laptop version is suitable for 13” laptops and A4 documents.
Why we love it
The material they’ve made has the feel of paper but is made from a combination of materials - including wood pulp and recycled fibres from used plastic bottles and textiles, which makes it robust, lightweight and water-resistant. We think these products age beautifully, the more they’re used and lovingly crinkled.
