Not My Father's Masking Tape
This is a bit far afield, but as the son of career 3M salesman, I couldn’t resist. A few weeks ago, I stumbled upon this Japanese Web site that sells nothing but masking tape.
As you can see it’s not the standard kraft paper-backed stuff, either. MT, as they call it, is rice paper backed and available in a huge range of colors and patterns. It arrives at your door in some pretty spiffy packaging, as well.
I’m quite fond of the MT shop, too — the minimalist-rustic exterior cleverly clears the palette for the shop’s saturated and boisterous products and decor.
