-CORDOVAN- Currently, Shinki is the only company in the world that consistently produces only horse-skin and can also make cordovan leather. At Shinki Leather, we have succeeded in producing world-class cordovan made by Shinki Leather through research and study of technology for more than 40 years since our founding. After aging and tanning, the dense fiber layer that exists only in the buttocks of the horse is shaved from the back side, and it takes time and effort to age and dry again, making it a horse leather that takes a total of 10 months to finish. It is also known as "King of Leather" and "Leather Diamond", and its unique luster and heavy texture are worthy of the name . -Excerpt from Shinki Leather Homepage-
We purchased carefully selected cordovan from Shinki Leather, and used cordovan from Redel Ogawa, which specializes in dyeing and finishing.
(CHERRY) The biggest attraction of Redel Ogawa's cordovan is the "aniline dyeing", which has a transparent and transparent feeling that can be sucked in. CHERRY is finished with an aniline dye. (BURGUNDY) BURGUNDY is finished with water dyeing. At first, it has amatte texture unlike cordovan dyed with aniline, but you can fully enjoy the change in glossiness by using it. All finished with the same color edge and stitch color

Thoughtful design with a thickness of only 15mm
Bills, coins, and cards can hold all the necessary storage in a wallet, and even if you store everything in this small size and thinness, the thickness will not change significantly. A surprising structure that can store 15 coins, 5 cards, and 1 card
The pursuit of thinness extends to hooks The hook is the bottleneck in making a thin wallet. Actually, the thickness of the hook makes a big difference in the thickness of the wallet. increase
Edge finish without compromise The face (edge) of the faceplate that has been polished A craftsman picks up the surface one by one with a planer and polishes it to create a beautiful rounded edge. As a fellow creator, I have nothing but respect for the craftsmanship of applying a planer to this thin edge.
