It’s finally here!
Tanuki Print’s new Asanawa (hemp cord) is a medium-strength baren which features a responsive wooden disk (atagawa) with internal shims for centralized power, a fiber coil with a cotton bumper perimeter, wrapped in a bamboo sheath (takenokawa). Comes with a baren pad, coversheet, instructions, and cameilia oil- everything you need.
This is a hand-crafted tool that prints just as well as barens three times the cost and will last for many years of printing. Perfect for the beginner, intermediate, and advanced printer. I’m currently busy making a large inventory and will be available for sale October 1st, 2023.
