Cohana Yuzen Leather Tape Measure
We have the limited editons of Sakura , Cherry Blossom as well as Winter ( white with gold).
These beautiful tape measures use Yuzen leather which has been dyed using a traditional Japanese dyeing method . By using special dyes which bring out the unevenness of the leather surface, users can enjoy the unique expression of each piece of leather.
The tape measures are made of high quality glass fibers and do not stretch or contract, so that accurate measurement is possible at all times.
High quality handmade tools made by the selective use of regional products and the best craftsmanship.
Each and every element of Cohana originates in Japan.
Every aspect of the product is made in Japan, making it an easy to use and practical handmade handicraft. "Yuzen Leather" is leather which has been dyed using a method created by Mr. Takeguchi, a craftsman in Ikuno-ku, Osaka. He applied Japanese traditional Yuzen dyeing to leather. Special dyes bring out the unevenness on the leather surface, so that users can enjoy the unique expressions of each piece of leather.
The tape measures have been created by the company Hara DOKI, which has specialized in the manufacturing and development of measuring tools since its foundation in 1906 in Odawara, Kanagawa Prefecture.
They are made of high quality glass fibers and do not stretch or contract, so that accurate measurement is possible at all times. We have wrapped the accurate and functional tape measure into Yuzen Leather, which you feel wonderful in your hand, and have completed each one by hand-sewing.
As usual with Japanese goods, the packaging is perfect – a beautiful presentation box and Cohana tag make these tape measures the ultimate gift for textile and craft lovers.
Markings are in mm and cm. with convenient 10cm blocks of colour.
Because leather yuzen is a natural material, there are variations in color and leather irregularity. Please enjoy as a texture.
When removing dirt, please wipe lightly with the cloth moistened with neutral detergent diluted solution.
When winding up the tape measure, hold the tip of the tape measure, push the center winding button and slowly store it.
