Summers in Japan are hot and humid... there's not much else to do but take it easy. So let's make like this kitten and just relax!
This unique Japanese greetings card is a sweet way to send family and friends your best wishes and a small gift all in one.
The traditional round Japanese fan is known as an 'uchiwa' and is made from bamboo and washi paper. The retro painted design on the front of this fan features a sleeping ginger kitten and watermelon slices with the words 'Let's take it easy' written in Japanese hiragana script.
The reverse of the fan is plain white with small painted details of a ginger cat and traditional Japanese summer windchime decoration.
The fan comes with a matching envelope and pretty notelet for you to write your message.
It is an ideal size to carry with you and makes a pretty and kitsch way to keep your cool on hot summer days.
The fan measures about 18 cm (7") from top to bottom and 11.5 cm (4½") across the widest part.
The notelet measures about 8.2 cm x 18 cm (3¼" x 7") and the envelope is 12 cm x 18.5cm (4¾" x 7¼").
Once the card is sealed, you can send it as a Royal Mail Large Letter (UK).
