Namiki Yukari Royal Japanese Wrapper
The Art of Japanese Gifts
Tabane-Noshi, or noshi bundles, are long thin strips of dried abalone used to wrap gifts for offerings at the Japanese Shinto rituals. Today, it is commonly used as a decorative embellishment for gifts at auspicious occasions and festivities, very often on formal items. The unique noshi bundles usually come in colourful geometric and floral patterns.
The word ‘noshi’ sounds similar to the Japanese character for ‘expansion’ or ‘progress’. Hence, it is regarded as an auspicious symbol that represents the continuation of the family line. This symbolic charm is also commonly embroidered on Japanese garments and kimonos to repel the evil forces.
Namiki creates a brilliant interpretation of the tabane-noshi on the Namiki Yukari Royal Japanese Wrapper fountain pen barrel, depicting the multi-coloured strips bounded together and flaring out in flowing waves elegantly. Executed in high relief taka maki-e and gold dust sprinkling to give the vibrancy and joyous mood for the user of this fountian pen. Handcrafted and signed by Misa Seki.
The highly detailed Namiki Yukari Royal Japanese Wrapper design showcases excellent craftsmanship and intricate beauty in a dynamic composition.
