This eraser was the first thing Omoi's founder Liz purchased on her first day of high school study abroad in Kobe, Japan.
Everyone in the class had one. She bought hers from the school store. This school store was the origin point of her admiration for impeccably stocked Japanese stationery supply shops.
If you didn't already know of the Tombow MONO's long-standing reputation as a durable, reliable eraser, we offer it to you now along with this nostalgic tale.
