Thank you note
The thank you note is an example of how the visual language of Sai riyō could be applied to a variety of media.
The note thanks the customer for supporting the non-profit’s mission, and gives a brief overview of what Sai riyō does.
Each package comes with a Japanese stitch bound book. In this book, the customer will find information about the art of kintsugi, the philosophy of Wabi-Sabi and the mental health and wellness workshops hosted by Sai riyō.
Typeset in Space Mono.
Cover paper: G.F. Smith Nomad Grey Rough 350gsm, made from 100% recycled fibre.
Handbound with waxed white thread.
The product is protected and supported within the packaging by shredded recycled cardboard.
Each piece is hand-crafted by a workshop attendee, which teaches healing through kintsugi.
Workshops are built on the idea that by embracing the flaws and imperfections of a broken ceramic, you can create an even stronger, more beautiful piece of art.
Much like cracks in ceramics, a person’s history should be celebrated - it is proof of their strength and who they are today.
