About our Stamps
Wooden grip cut from Japanese Shimanto Cypress range from 3cm - 9cm depending on design, and the number of faces in the stamp. The rubber pads used for the stamp face is made in Japan, specially sourced from a crafters' shop in Tokyo. The ink brand is Tsukineko which is high pigment and stamps the same colour as the pad. All in all, the quality of these handcrafted stamps are highly ensured, specially put together by the artist.
The artist is the sole crafter for this project.
