White tanned leather has a history of over 1,000 years. This product is hand-crafted by artisans using techniques passed down through generations.
Working with nature, they use the pure waters of the Ichikawa River flowing through the city of Himeji in Hyogo prefecture, salt, rapeseed oil, and sunlight to produce the unique texture of this soft, white leather.
This is a creative product that uses rare leather, incorporating with their brand trademark of industrial parts and hand sewing.
Expert’s comment: This is a brand with lasting appeal that fits perfectly with the word “product” rather than “fashion.” The industrial elements and absolute commitment to quality in the handiwork are thoroughly appreciated even in Europe, the world’s leather products capital.
