niconeco Japanese Color Letterpress Notecard - Aoni(青丹色)
Our second original letterpress notecard collection. Thoughtfully printed by our friends at OEDA Letterpress studio. A beautiful combination of vintage and tradition. Available in four colors; Ura(裏色),Aoni(青丹), Rikyucha(利休茶)and Hadoba(鳩羽色).
The color “Aoni(青丹)”, a bright olive color was used as color pigment for cosmetics and professional makeups for eyebrows back to ancient times. Here, “Ao (青)” means “Green”, and “Ni(丹)” means “Mustard”. It represents a mustard color that has green mixed in which is very close to what we call “Olive” nowadays.
Made with “Half-air Cork" paper, it has a warm light cream tone and gives much more flexibility for typewriter users. It is compatible with all type of writing instruments including water-based brush pens and fountain pens.
