YSTUDIO collaborated with Rakugei in Japan, a traditional foil art workshop, for their Renaissance YAKIHAKU portable ballpoint pen. Mr. Kohei Murata, the owner of Rakugei and the third-generation successor of his family-owned foil technique, started to learn the "Flat foil" technique from his father while studying at the university. Flat foil is originally a special weaving method used on the Japanese traditional garment, kimono. And now, Mr. Murata is dedicated to applying this technique in other fields.
In this collaboration, Mr. Murata used rare material "Unryū (means cloud dragon) Foil" and applied it to YSTUDIO's pen with delicate and high-skilled traditional techniques. Through this process, the foil reveals a unique tint of vulcanized silver just like a dragon flying in the clouds.
The YAKIHAKU Ballpoint Pen embodied the beauty of Japanese classical aesthetics and traditional craftsmanship in YSTUDIO's brand style.
