    Asakusa Bunko used to manufacture kimonos, and the methods required to create kimonos are being used to carefully and precisely dye these purses, the 2 methods which were namely used in the production of kimonos that are being utilized in this process are 2 types of “yuzen” dyeing methods for both patterns and hand-drawn.

    The first thing to do in this process is to take the white-tanned cowhide from Hyogo Prefecture’s Tatsuno City and use the pattern type of “yuzen” dyeing to create the initial patterns of the design. After this the master craftsmen and women move into the hand-drawn section of creation. This is where the master craftsmen and women carefully draw in the colour of each individual line one by one. Through using these 2 different types of “yuzen” dyeing, it creates a more deep and full shade allowing for a more soft and warm finish. Asakusa Bunko is the only manufacturer within Japan that uses both of these methods when creating their products!

    After the hand-drawn “yuzen” dyeing has been completed, it’s time to move onto the process of making the drawn shapes three dimensional. A machine that can output over 100 tonnes of force is used to press the shapes into the leather. Finally, it’s time to sew. Sewing into uneven leather is extremely difficult, and typical manufacturers cannot create a clean finish doing this, however, as Asakusa Bunko, some of the best sewers in the business with over 40 years of history are employed to create these amazing pieces of art.
