Korindo, inheriting the development and tradition of Echizen lacquerware, has crafted this Pen Box to make tradition and beauty accessible to everyone. The surface is coated with urethane, over which Mount Fuji and Sakura are depicted in mother-of-pearl inlay and gold leaf.

Mother-of-pearl, now popular in fountain pen decorations and jewelry, has been frequently used by lacquerware artisans for decoration in Japanese history. The pen box becomes stunningly beautiful thanks to the mother-of-pearl inlays of Mount Fuji, which shimmer in various colors depending on the angle, and the gold leaf Sakura.

The inside of the box is lined with felt, ensuring your precious pens are not scratched. It serves well as a storage box for your important stationery, but it is also perfect for adding a touch of Japanese beauty to your desk. And for you, who values not just the design but also the background, history, and traditions behind it, using this will surely bring satisfaction every time.

Discover the Backstory of Korindo

Founded in 1938 in Fukui Prefecture and boasting a history of over 80 years, Korindo has gained recognition for its significant role, including providing ceremonial tableware for the enthronement of Japan's new emperor. "Korindo" is their brand name, formally known as Echizen Lacquerware Co., Ltd., which plays a vital role in inheriting the traditional craft of Echizen lacquerware, a quintessence of Japanese artisanship.

Their corporate philosophy, "Brilliance of Rin to the world," draws inspiration from Rin, a leading school of Japanese art and culture during the medieval era, still influential today. Being close to Kyoto, the capital at the time, has deeply rooted their work in Rin's influence, incorporating its patterns into their lacquerware. Embracing Rin's spirit of freedom, boldness, and challenge, combined with the craftsmanship passed down through generations, they aim to create lacquerware that enriches lives and brings joy.
