The Art of Packaging

Yesterday I received perhaps the most tastefully packaged online order ever.






It’s almost seven years since I left Japan, and I had forgotten that this kind of art was still possible. No scuffed brown cardboard, no Scotch tape, no bubble wrap, but everything still pristine and crease-free. It almost feels as if you picked it up yourself in a shop.



These are color pencils designed to fit within the covers of the Hobonichi Techo. Death by cuteness!

  1. The way the Hobonichi Techo and its accessories are wrapped and packed is beautiful. With my second order this year I got some flat items which were wrapped twice, namely in a transparent foil and a foamed one. – It is funny to see that you have ordered this set of colour pencils too :-)
