“We want to focus on not only the color, but also the quality of the inside that we cannot see”

It is said that it takes around 2 tons of water to transform the skin of one cow into leather. Tatsuno City in Hyogo’s Matsubara region is surrounded by the abundant waters of the Ibogawa and Hayashidagawa rivers, making the Himeji area the most prosperous leather manufacturing center in Japan.
Himeji leather is popular for its thinness, lightness, good coloration when dyed, and ability to produce a wide variety of colors.
