The Brass Pen and Pencil Case from the Traveler's Company (formerly Midori) is made from 100% solid brass.
It feels reassuringly heavy to pick up and the brass ages beautifully giving your case a patina individual to you. Within a short time it will take on the appearance of a precious heirloom, something that could have been passed down through generations. It is a little shorter than a Traveler's notebook making it a perfect size for carrying with you on your travels and the lid snaps shut firmly to protect your items.
Made in Japan
Midori's love for their Brass products is evident, and as they put it:"BRASS changes its color and texture as you use it, and every single BRASS item changes differently depending on the user and his/her environment. This is something unique to and wonderful about brass. As the copper within the brass oxidizes, your brass item might develop some verdigris, a kind of rust. Take it easy, since it does no harm to you. If you want the original gloss of the brass back, just try polishing the item with metal polish. Enjoy and cherish the highly nuanced color hue and texture only brass can give you."
