There are countless stones all over the place. They are ubiquitous, and although at first glance they may seem to make no difference to each other, they have different characteristics depending on the surrounding geology and the type of rock.

The stones are selected with a view to how they will fit in the fingers and palm, how comfortable they will feel in the hand, and how they will look when covered with leather.

This leather is made from the hides of cows born and raised in Japan. Its fibres are dense and fine, and it is characterised by its suppleness and firmness. It contains oil and wax, which makes it shine with use.

The leather is soaked in water and then moulded close to the stone. The leather has a plasticity which means that when it is deformed by force, the distortion remains intact. The leather, which can be up to 2 mm thick, is dried slowly to ensure that it adheres to the stone without any gaps, and to stabilise its shape.

The accompanying card shows the production number, the maker's mark and the coordinates of the place where the stone was collected.

Ideas come from our hands. If you hold it in your hand when you are thinking about something, it can inspire great ideas and a wealth of imagination. It can be used as a paper weight or as an object to decorate a space.
