A Leather Accessory Created Using Techniques for Kimonos
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!
If you have it, good luck may come in! "Owl" pattern key clip with a slightly funny look
A cute key clip with an owl that looks at you with big eyes and raises one leg a little. Around it, flowers of the four seasons such as dogwood flowers, chrysanthemum, and plum blossoms are decorated, and each one is designed with a pattern with the wish of "Happiness." Owls are good luck birds with auspicious letters such as "福来朗" (Fukurairou - Good Luck Come) and "不苦労" (Fukurou - No Hardship) in Japanese, so if you have them, you may be lucky! There are two colors, "Sunset" based on gray and "Sunrise" based on pink.
A practical key clip where you can find the key without sifting through the whole bag
A key clip that can clip on the inner pocket of the bag. You can fix the location of the key, so you don't have to look through the bottom of the bag. It's nice to be able to attach up to three keys, such as a house key and a car key! Another point is that you can also attach it to the outside of the bag.
