【What you would like me to know when choosing this leather product】
Even if you say "genuine leather" bitefully, do you know that there is a big difference in its nature and price?
Actually, even if it is indicated as "real leather goods", its price is quite varied.
Although the difference in price depends on the design and manufacturing process, it is not uncommon for the same real leather to produce a difference of more than 10 times even if it is compared in the place of "material cost of leather".
Why so much difference? The reason is described below.
There are two manufacturing methods for leather. "Chrome tanning" and "vegetable tannin tanning".
At present, leather that is on the market is dominated by leather tanned using "chrome tanning" chemical ingredients.
Chrome tanned leather has the advantage that the surface is finished relatively uniformly, flexible, and resistant to heat.
Also, because it is finished in large quantities in a short period of time, the cost is also cheap, but on the other hand, it is also a leather that is not easy to achieve "aging" which is the real pleasure of using this leather.
Scratches and dirt of aging will remain unchanged as scratched dirt as it is, it will be seen as "deteriorated" in the eyes.
In other words [Chrome tanned leather is a material suitable for mass production, I think that it can be said that the most beautiful leather when finished].
Meanwhile, the leather tanned using the astringent taste of "plant tannin tanning" is called "leather nume".
Nume leather tanning is an ancient process. The finish that keeps the texture of the raw skin, the surface is easily affected by innate scars and blood traces, the softness also varies depending on the part.
It is costly to finish over a long time and it is hard to say that it is a stable material, but leather that can enjoy the "aging" such as changing the gloss by long use and increasing the depth of the color.
[Nume leather is an old manufacturing method, it takes time and cost, but it is not perfect when you put it in hand, I think that you can say that leather is growing attachment over time.
What you are asking for materials of leather, does not it mean "long lasting material"?
"Because you have leather goods at a great price, I'd like you to choose leather that you can taste the change by using it long."
From that idea, KALEIDOSCOPE's work is focused on "Nume leather".
[At the beginning is a smooth texture of bare skin, polished by friction while you use, gloss is born]
This leather is a place called Himeji in Japan, it is a high-grade leather made using traditional leather tanning technique.
It will be polished by using it, and shiny will be born, so you can enjoy the changing everyday.
Leather is easy to stain with water. Please refrain from using rainy weather.
* Even though you can make a spot, you think that it is a process of aging, growing into a candy color by using it.
【If you are looking for intact leather products, please refrain from purchasing】
Because it is natural leather, there are inherent scars and unevenness.
Although it avoids big scratches, please understand some small scratches.
The appearance of scratches and scratches unevenness are different one by one.
It is worrisome if you catch it as "scratch", this is also the proof that this leather was alive, "the only pattern".
I think that you can enjoy scratches and unevenness as "only for yourself", handmade, and it is unique to this leather Nume.
I used YKK fastener made in Japan.
I am also attracted to fashionable European zipper designs, but "the goodness of sliding, the hardness of failure, durability" In comparison with these points, I think that Japan's fastener is also wonderful.
【Commitment to Production】
* As possible 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.
