SIWA (meaning ‘crinkle’ in Japanese) is located in area of Japan which boasts over 1000 years of making paper. Industrial designer Naoto Fukasawa teamed with washi paper maker ONAO to create the SIWA products. 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.
Why we love it
We think these products age beautifully, the more they’re used and lovingly crinkled. Delicately handmade and wonderfully light, these pouches are a perfect home for your pens and pencils.
