The ermine, also known as the stoat and the short-tailed weasel, is not particularly rare or particularly friendly (in fact, they're a menace to bird populations and an aggressive invader species to foreign ecosystems). But Midori sure makes them look cute! This stationery set features the humble, furry ermine on four envelope seals and at the top of twelve sheets of letter writing paper. You also get four envelopes in a simple, tonal brown pattern that evokes spring sprouts or winter trees. Made in Japan.
