The beautiful Yuzen measuring tape is a work of art. The casing is made from Yuzen Leather, and coloured using Yuzen dying, a technique also used to create traditional kimono’s. Yuzen dye makes the rough texture of leather more prominent, creating a unique look and feel compared to regular covers. The cover is hand-sewn over the tape measure.
The tape measure itself is made by the company Hara DOKI from the Kanagawa Prefecture, a company that has produced measuring tools for over 100 years. The Hara DOKI measuring tapes are made from glass fibres and do not stretch or contract, ensuring an accurate measuring tape. The measuring tape is 150cm long and is two-toned black and beige on one side, and regular white with black marks on the other side. Each measuring tape is beautifully packaged. This is a measuring tape that you will own for life and will age with you.
