Pencil Pot Of The Month – December 2016 2


Description: A pencil pot made from fabric and leather. Made in Japan by Horishima based United Bees.

Price: Unknown, it was a gift

Material: Leather (handle) and a fabric similar to what you find on backpacks

Further information: I got this pencil pot as a gift from Yumiko from Japan (Thanks). It comes with a cross type divider you often get with pencil pots – when you look from the top a cross divides the pencil pot space into four equal sections. I saw on the label that it is made in Japan, but didn’t want to check the manufacturer’s web site for more info as I thought that would bring me to the price and it didn’t feel right to  look up the price of a gift.

    Great photos and thanks for sharing them.

    I was wondering whether it feels a little tippy — like it might fall over if the sections aren’t filled evenly. If that’s so, I wonder if putting some marbles in each section might prevent that, which might also give you a little more control over the arrangement?

    Thanks for your comment.
    Good thinking, but the PPOTM is surprisingly stable, even if only one of the four compartments is filled with heavy Wopex pencils.
