`Bokutotsu na Kawaya´
・About my products
Bokutotsu na Kawaya is a leather products manufacturer who makes leather products with minimum functions , based on the concept of simple and unique. My aim is two provide good quality leather and parts, and also my products use leftover leather and discarded fabric (damaged, scratched, etc.). From this, I have developed a unique patchwork style. I try to show the ‘beauty of incompleteness’ and different types of leather products. By making new and unique styles I hope to strech concept of leatherwork so everyone in this world can get to know the beauty of leather.
