Yura No In are beautiful engraved original wooden stamps from Studio Lotus / Lotus Atelier in Fukuoka, Japan. Established in 1910, the studio is rich in history and had carefully engraved their stamps in what is now a rare type of boxwood grown only in Kagoshima, Japan. This rarity has made this wood difficult to source in recent years but the beautiful detail steeped in tradition is still present in their collection of stamps.
Unlike rubber stamps, the simple, yet elegant design is engraved directly into the wood instead of into a rubber that is attached to the wood. This is a much slower and delicate process that is finished off by hand. How to use and care for this stamp is noted below.
