Carry your writing tools in this elegant pencil case! These beautiful roll-up cases are made from quality traditional patterned Japanese fabric and have a soft, luxurious feel. The three inside pockets are covered by an additional fabric flap, all tied together with a thick, black cotton cord. Different fabric styles and colors available. Made in Japan.
Case dimensions: Approximately 7.1 inches (18 cm) wide and 6.9 inches (17.6 cm) tall when unrolled.
I've had one of these in the Navy pattern for a while now, and decided that a
second one could come in useful. I expected the fabric to be exactly the same,
but this one feels slightly but noticeably heavier and stiffer. Not a problem,
just a slight difference. And perhaps it will soften up with use.
Like the Navy one, it will easily hold 6 pens or pencils of varying sizes, and
then probably a few more, depending on exactly what you want to put in there.
With longer pens, particularly with fountain pens, it seems that the pocket
clips won't come down far enough to clip on to the inside pocket of this wrap,
but with the whole thing secured with the cord, it's unlikely that they would
come out by accident.
The pattern of the fabric is attractive, but the effect is slightly marred by
the manufacturer's tag that you can see on the outside in the pictures.
Luckily, with care, it is possible to pick the threads and remove this without
damaging the case. It looks much better without it.
I purchased this case, and the red one as well, for use at formal talks by
Shambhala Buddhist teachers. An elegant way to carry pens -- I use it for brush
pens as well, and find that my brushes fit well and stay in the case just fine.
Another reviewer noted that these are not for rough use -- for dignified
elegance, though, they are perfect!
I love these things for when i want to take drawing pencils, mechanical pens,
fountain pens with me..for sketching outside or whatever. A soft pouch for your
expensive pens and pencils. Pen Zen. Very cool. Kind of like an old jewelry
pouch. I would say the original use of these was for makeup brushes. Sort of
repurposed for pens. Some people complained that you can't clip the pen or
mechanical pencil clip on it as the pouch part is a bit short for most
pens/pencil clips to reach. Probably as it wasn't designed for that purpose.
However hope that saki reads their customer gripes and makes the pouch a bit
deeper for us pen people. It's not the most secure pen case obviously...if you
are kinda rough on your stuff id look elsewhere. if you are careful and
what..refined...i think you'll like this. Therefore I give it 4 not 5 stars.
Beautiful! Can't wait to unravel this case in public and show it off! So far I
have about 4 mechanical drafting pencils, 4 pens and 1 Sharpie in it and has
room for more! Can't wait to buy another one of these in a different
color/pattern. Thank you JP!
