why this product

The silver satin finish of this business card holder belies its 100% brass body and nickel coating. Meant to withstand daily use, the nickel coating has a high hardness (almost as hard as steel) that is most commonly applied to kitchen utensils, bathroom fixtures, electrical and mechanical tools as well as office equipment.

Beyond the surface, this business card holder also facilitates graceful networking, thanks to its hinged lid, which automatically lifts and separates a single card from the pack. A mirror on the interior of the lid provides the opportunity for a sly teeth or lipstick check. You can also store your credit cards and a few money bills in the case, when you want to pare down for an evening out.

production & design

Mr. Hiroshi Tsubota founded his small accessories company in 1952, just after the end of World War II. He set the tone for this new company with his first product: the “Violet,” an innovative cigarette holder and lighter combination made of hand pressed acrylic and metal. In 1983, the brand branched out to offer other small, refined goods, including mirrors, card holders and perfume sticks.
