Calligraphy pens creating an elegant impression both during and before writing
Okaju offers stylish calligraphy pens, which will create an elegant impression both when requested to sign your name or write a line merely by unwrapping the bag to take out the calligraphy pen and while writing with it. Okaju is a long-standing Kyoto’s Yuzen dyeing shop established in 1855. The calligraphy pen wrapped in a pongee (silk yarn) bag is a typical item of Okaju representing the cutting edge Japanese style, which matches both the traditional Japanese style costumes and kimono accessories with modern jewelry. The bags are dyed with traditional Japanese colors such as Enji (dark red), Kogareko (light brown), odo (brownish yellow), sumiguro (gray), usu-murasaki (pale purple), hatoba-murasaki (steel gray) and chojicha (clove brown). The pens are carefully made and processed with lacquer by a professional craft person while the finely shaped brush pen point is easy to handle and adds a graceful touch to your script. Ink cartridges can be replaced so you can use it for long time. The silk yarn’s softness along with the gentle rustling sound when unwrapping and the shiny finish of the Japanese lacquer all make for an experience that is more than just writing. Enjoy this experience using all the five senses utilizing a true masterpiece of Kyoto craft items. The pen in the photo is 7,140 yen.
