I like the shape of envelopes.
A rectangular and diagonal interwoven rhythm, a state of keeping a seal in the center.
Based on the shape of such an envelope, "Compact but excellent storage capacity" I made a wallet.
□ Material: full vegetable tannin tanned cattle Nume leather (made in Tochigi leather)
□ Size: T85 × W102 × D28 mm (Please allow some errors)
□ Leather: It is a leather with moderate thickness and elasticity.
□ Color: Orange Brown (It turns to deeper shades over the years)
【Simple and large capacity mini wallet】
I made it using cattle leather made of Tochigi leather boasted by Japan.
"When you want to decide easily" is a mini purse.
Since the coin is in the front pocket and the back pocket is partitioned, it can be stored separately from the bill with the card (the bill can be stored in two folds).
[Simple, for long use. We pursued materials and structure]
Designed as a shoulder part of Nume leather, choosing a dense part of the fiber, folding it plumply as much as possible. There is capacity while it is compact size.
With regard to tailoring, we dare to eliminate the sewn part and tailor it only with caulking inside, so there is no failure due to wear or fraying of the thread compared to normal "seamy wallet".
[The original texture of leather is attractive]
I selected this leather made from leather which Japan boasts of "Tochigi leather" as a material.
Tannin tanned leather peculiar tight texture, Bitter Brown's beautiful surface feeling is attractive.
Gloss and color tone increase enough to wear, I will go aging more tastefully.
【What you would like to know about the material called Nume leather】
Genuine leather is roughly divided into two: "chrome leather" and "tannin leather".
Today, chrome tanner is the mainstream for most of the market.
Chrome tanned leather is tanned with chemicals.
It has the advantage of being tanned in a short time, being inexpensive, soft and heat resistant.
It is a stable material that is hard to degenerate, in other words "When you finish it is the most beautiful material".
On the other hand, tannin leather is also called "Nume leather" and boasts a strong popularity though it is a minority in the market.
It has been tanned over time taking advantage of the astringent of plants by an ancient production method.
Because it is not suitable for mass production, it is expensive, natural unevenness easily goes out, it is not a stable material, but it is a material that you can enjoy the real pleasure of "leather change with aging".
"It is not perfect when you put it in hand, but it can be said that the attachment increases over time."
"Because you have this leather product, you can enjoy the secular change"
I chose this material from that idea.
【Commitment to Production】
As much as possible by hand.
Even if you say handmade leather goods, how to make it is various.
There are many places where mass production is carried out using a press machine and a punching die when cutting leather.
Cutting with a drafting tool saves the labor of work and the shape is accurate.
However, the work of KALEIDOSCOPE sticks to "making by hand cutting with the leather kitchen knitted by myself as much as possible" from paper making to cutting of leather.
In KALEIDOSCOPE's work, there are many curved designs, but it is necessary to have some kind of skill to successfully cut out.
I would be pleased if you could actually see and get what "human hand cut out".
