Lovely original stationeries that will make you feel like writing a letter to someone
Suzando Hashimoto was founded in 1953 as a Japanese stationery item store. Japanese etiquette hand paper (kaishi), letter pads, envelopes and decorative envelopes for celebratory occasions and many other paper items are displayed everywhere. In the Heian period (794-1185) in Kyoto, noble people enjoyed writing poems and letters on a beautiful piece of paper. Kozando Hashimoto’s paper items speak of the elegance of this Japanese imperial atmosphere. The seasonal letter set (1,890 yen) with a pretty fish-shaped card, a set of small envelopes in the form of round fans (473 yen for 5 envelopes) and a set of envelops in the form of a morning glory flower with golden decoration (1,050 yen for 3 envelops) are particularly popular. Not only Kyoto locals but also a number of fans of Kozand Hashimoto all around Japan love their graceful original designs.
