-WHALE LEATHER- The leather that even the “night club manager” doesn’t know of or has never seen before is [whale skin]. Nubuck-like nubuck-like brushed surface, fluffy and gentle texture Everything is a first experience of leather
For the Japanese, whales are a bounty of the sea, so much so that it is said that they have nowhere to throw them away, and they have been familiar to us since ancient times as a valuable source of protein. Whale skin is eaten raw or blanched. Japanese whale cuisine, which uses the skin and organs as food, is a unique food culture in the world. It is believed that the inedible parts of whales were distributed as hides.
In 1982, the IWC (International Whaling Commission) passed a resolution to suspend commercial whaling, and Japan accepted this resolution in 1988. As a result, it seems that whale skin has become a rare leather that is rarely seen (* In June 2019, Japan withdrew from the International Convention for the Regulation of Whaling, and from July of the same year, resumption of commercial whaling targeting large cetaceans)
It is now common knowledge that "leather is a by-product of food" and we do not take the lives of living things for leather.
The root of the leather industry "without wasting the life that was given for human food" In keeping with this spirit, we will send this rare whale skin out to the world as a middle wallet.
Since [whale skin] was not in general circulation, I do not know if it will be accepted by everyone. It is unknown whether you will find value in it. I would appreciate it if you could
