(In Japanese, ao means blue and nezu is short for nezumi which means mouse.)
It is our unique color that is like a mix of blue, green, and gray. In the past, it was called wasabi color. Now we call is ao-nezu because it is a bluish gray.
It is the most popular color at our shop, regardless of age. As it is a color that is hardly ever found in other shops, many customers say that when they think of Ichizawa, this color comes to mind.
The color is perfect for use at any time whether it is an outing or on business as it adds a dash of color to an otherwise black and white business scene.
