When Iwako Japan and Iwako USA collaborate on colors for a new series of erasers, the colors reflect a truly Japanese palette. The soft pastels of the erasers that we will be able to ship in October show this. The pastels work very well on the sea life and color dipped popsicles.
When these same colors are used for the motorcycle Japanese erasers, these are not the first color of choice for boys in the US. Iwako Japan says these colors appeal to the male eraser buyers there. It is always interesting to see what will sell in one part of the world, may be not so popular in another part.
