Tu ed io (Tueio business card holder) / Indigo (indigo-dyed leather)

The leather used is the highest quality indigo-dyed leather made in Japan, tanned using environmentally friendly methods.

The deep indigo leather on the outside takes on an indescribably transparent ultramarine look when exposed to sunlight, so please enjoy it in the sunlight. The inside is made of indigo-dyed leather that is two tones lighter in color to express the difference in appearance.

Even regular vegetable tanned leather takes a lot of time and effort to make, but indigo-dyed leather is made even more by hand, with each piece being dyed with indigo multiple times, making it a rare leather that cannot be mass-produced.

The hands of the craftsmen dyeing the leather are stained indigo blue.

Indigo dye usually fades easily, but this leather has been treated to prevent color fading.

*Indigo-dyed leather is dyed by hand, so uneven coloring may occur. Please understand that this is also the nature of the product and the result of the handmade process.

The button snaps are made in Japan with high precision using silver-plated brass, providing a secure click that fastens nicely.

The edges of the leather are processed using a technique called cut processing, which makes them more durable than leather with turned edges. Even if the edges deteriorate, it is possible to repair them in some cases, and they are given a beautiful, smooth matte finish during the manufacturing process.

The product's name is Tu ed io, which means you and me in Italian, and it's up to the individual to decide how to build a relationship through exchanging business cards.
As an aside, in Italian there are two words for you: Tu and Lei, but Tu is the more closely related word.

It can hold business cards up to 1.1cm thick.
There is a partition inside the main body so you can separate your own business cards from those you receive.
