Has this been posted already? I just heard about it:



It holds up to 30 rolls and is not all that big. It's from summer CHA and is starting to show up in stores. I wonder if Two Peas will carry it?

I just moved all my washi from a jar to the dowel on my big MM shelf. But I'm considering this now, especially for tapes I plan to use often like for PL. Hmmm ...

What do you think?

I just watched a video on that dispenser. It has metal edges for tearing, which is not necessary for washi (but is for gaffer's tape). I think the little wheels actually take up a fair amount of space in the gadget and don't really add anything to your experience, because it is just as easy to pick up the tape and rip off a piece. I don't think it looks that great either, with all the wheels showing.

Good idea but I will pass.

I just saw them in person at a store over the weekend. It did seem pretty large from what I remember, but I didn't inspect it very closely.

It's a neat concept but I prefer the hand torn look to my washi over cutting it off on the tape dispenser. I had a roll in a cute dispenser & I kept taking it out when I wanted to use the tape.

You can fit more than 1 washi to a roller. I have a friend that has 2 tapes to each roller. I did order this as the deal from a different online store. It came with tape also so for me, it was a pretty good deal.

It looks too big for me! I'm already tight on desk space! I can't imagine where I'd put that!

I like the concept of it, but it does look like it would be too bulky. Plus I'm not sure how it would hold up to 30 rolls....if you put 2 on each dispenser, that's only 16 rolls & then maybe 4-5 on the center space. What's the price on it, anyone know?

A vertical or rectangular dispenser that would take up less table space would be more functional, I think. But it IS tempting, as always.

I ordered it. I have space to put it where it isn't on my desk. Hopefully I like it.

I think it would be cool, if you could stack them; but I don't think you can.

Journey fan...I sent you Pmail, but it doesn't look like it went through. Let me know if it doesn't show up.

the fact that you can't stack them is what made them a complete "NO" for me. I have wayyyy too much washi and not enough space to have several of these lined up all over the place!

I saw it over the weekend. It certainly wouldn't hold all the washi I have and I know I don't have as much as some others. I did not buy it.

Interesting concept, but I'm happy with my 6' rod of washi.

I feel the same not being stackable, and, a large footprint makes this a no go, much as I would love a tape dispenser for my washi, it's just not designed well enough for me moneywise or space wise.

Benita- saw it at Archivers today. It's $24.99. There's an online place that is selling with washi for, I think $45.

Too bulky, IMO.

Many Costco's have it for $23.99 filled with the washi! Haven't found it at mine but the ladies who ave found it in gift wrap

That's pretty neat, but I love the little wood one that looks like a camera available from anthropologie.
The WRMK one looks like it would be a space waster. Have you seen it in person?

I'm in the process of purging 75% of our household stuff (at least that's my goal) so that one would not be something I would use because it wouldn't be something I would really really love
