Paperweight of Nambu Ironware in "Cohana" brand from Kawaguchi, Japanese manufacture.

These Cohana's iconic button-motif paperweights are cast in the Nambu style of ironworking. Their solid weight is perfect for holding cloth in place for sewing or dressmaking, and add an elegant touch to the modern sewer’s toolkit. Paperweights are painted with care to maintain the distinctive smooth-but-textured look of the high-quality cast iron.

In 1975, Nambu Ironware was designated by the Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry as a Japanese traditional craft, a rigorous designation requiring over a century of history of production and the craft being made mostly by hand for use in daily life. Today, the tradition has been passed down to the Mizusawa and Morioka regions in northern Japan, and the castings produced in these two areas are collectively known as Nambu Ironware. We source from Oisei Foundry, who started operations in Mizusawa in 1923 and has maintained a tradition of innovation and excellence, giving new form to an ancient art.

Each paperweight can also be used as a pen holder for up to 4 pens. They are stackable and can be neatly stored. Collect multiple colors for a vibrant, one-of-a-kind look!
