This pen roll is simply a work of art. Beautiful leather, soft but strong like a well worn leather coat. I will treasure this forever.

About

Simple Comfort and Subtle Luxury

We have been looking for the ones simple yet practical, and translated the ideas into our pieces. We hope that all of our pieces can bring people simple comfort and subtle luxury as old Japanese handmade items and ancient traditions do.

When we encountered old Japanese handmade items, they appealed to our dormant instinct. Such old handmade items could be a real eye-opener for modern people like us. The fresh and radical designs could be found in traditional Japanese beauty. We wondered if the timeless feeling for beauty could be reincarnated.

asaborake tries to fuse such a timeless Japanese beauty into the modern life. Through our every piece created by hands, we'd like everyone to feel "the gentle flow of time". We think that is a real luxury in the modern time. With this concept, we began to make purses and bags made of leathers and Kimono fabrics.

With our leather pieces, we are looking for something like traditional Japanese beauty that any excess is eliminated for focusing on the essential quality; simple and functional.

In addition, unfortunately, we hardly have the emotion, as we feel on old handmade items, on the modern mass-produced items. We miss the warmth and love, which we can feel through handmade items. Every piece of our hand-stitched leather items has a unique character created by hands, and we think that the unique character of every piece get everyone to be attached to it, and the piece will truly make a one-of-a-kind item to each person.

To make such a feeling of warmth and love tangible, we create our piece by piece by hands...

Asaborake began with the idea that old Japan might become alive again in modern life.
Sometimes when we look at the designs of traditional crafts, the older they are, the more modern they seem.
Asaborake crafts attempt to demonstrate how beautiful and timeless antique Japanese designs can blend with modern fashion.

With our simple hand-stitched leather pieces, we have been looking for simple yet practical ones and translated the ideas into our pieces. We hope that all of our pieces can bring people simple comfort and subtle luxury as Japanese ancient traditions do.
