Stationery from Japan and South Korea. Representative in everyday life

The high standard of Japanese stationery - from which our range has benefited for many years - also has to do with the fact that the Japanese script made mechanization by typewriters difficult. Although the first typewriter models were already available at the beginning of the last century, if one wanted to use not only the Japanese syllabary, but also the Chinese characters ("Kanji") that are common in Japan, they proved to be extremely awkward to use. Until the introduction of the office computer, it was still customary to write business letters by hand, and for reasons of prestige, high-quality writing material was used. The passion for this has persisted in Japan to this day, even when it is not for prestigious correspondence, but for everyday notes. And elsewhere in the East Asian region, too, an affinity for selected stationery continues to be evident. These are often characterized by fine, smooth uncoated papers with discreet rulings - this is due to the still very widespread use of fine-lead pens, which have proven their worth in terms of the recognizability of complex characters. For our assortment we have collected some such high-quality notebooks and notepads as well as calendars from Japan and South Korea.
