Yosegi Mosaic Ruler (Japan Works)
Midori has been a leading stationery brand in Japan since 1950. Their new Japan Works collection of rulers showcase the traditional crafts of various areas of Japan, using ancient materials and techniques in a modern form. The ruler has a notched edge, making it easier to pick up.
"Yosegi" is the traditional craft of parquetry, dating back to the Edo period. The mosaic features two contrasting woods in a simple but striking pattern.
Comes in a handsome presentation sleeve with information on the craft behind the ruler.
Even if metric isn't your standard, the ruler is still great for drawing straight lines and for relative measurements.
