The crumpled texture of the paper gives the appearance of weathered leather, yet the material is pleasingly soft, lightweight and flexible. The walls of the case are padded for extra protection from bumps and drops.
This product is made out of an innovative new material developed by washi paper-maker ONAO and designer Naoto Fukasawa. Together they teamed up to create SIWA Paper Accessories, a line of functional products in hard-to-tear Hi-Tec paper, known as Naoron. It is soft, flexible, highly water-resistant and strong, allowing it to carry up to 22 pounds of weight.
