SIWA Small Wallet

SIWA Japan makes small luxury goods from a supple, proprietary paper, featuring durability and water resistance which suggest leather or waxed canvas. 

Located in Ichikawamisato, Yamanashi, which boasts a 1000 year history of paper making, the Japanese paper maker ONAO and industrial designer Naoto Fukasawa joined together to create the SIWA series. Fukasawa found that the special texture of Naoron, a hard-to-tear paper developed by ONAO, emerged when the paper was crumpled, and suggested designs for everyday goods that harnessed this. The name SIWA is both a reversing of the characters in the word washi (wasi), and a word meaning, "crinkle" in Japanese. As with leather goods, these washi products are lovingly, individually crafted.
