Mitercraft Wood Bookmarks Hand Made in America - Functional Art for Your Favorite Books - The Great Wave by Japanese Artist Hokusai
Handmade from the finest high grade hand-selected sustainable hardwoods. This bookmark features beautiful natural grain maple in the center with a photo print of The Great Wave off Kanagawa, also known as The Great Wave or simply The Wave. A woodblock print by the Japanese ukiyo-e artist Hokusai. It was published sometime between 1829 and 1833 as the first print in Hokusai's series featuring Mount Fuji. The high quality color reproduction of the wave is on one side while the backside of the bookmark is left blank showing the beautiful wood grain. A gold color rope tassel is added as a finishing touch, and to help keep your book page well marked. This bookmark is a great gift to include along with a book.
Craftsmanship and Stewardship Make the Difference
Nestled in a hundred-acre forest of lush, green ferns and towering fir and cedar trees, Mitercraft is a company truly inspired by its surroundings. Using only hand-selected, sustainably harvested wood, we celebrate its natural beauty by hand-making products that allow the glory to be showcased. Our passion leads us to design unique bookmarks with pride that only comes from a handcrafted process.
We’re excited to be a part of the resurgence of makers and old-world craftsmanship. We’ve been handcrafting our bookmarks with the same multi-step work process since 1991. Technology may come and go, and it certainly helps enhance our products, but there is no substitute for good, old-fashioned woodworking that produces heirloom quality products. Our complex production steps include precision cutting, laminating, shaping, sanding, polishing, finishing, laser engraving, drilling and tasseling.
Our love and respect for the environment and the extraordinary surroundings in which we live guides our workplace practices. We take care to recycle leftover pieces into other products, making each a unique work of art. When a piece is ready to be shipped we hand prepare it, sealing it in a clear, protective sleeve with artist information. What arrives at your doorstep is a creative, handmade, thoughtfully crafted product from start to finish.
