芥子色

Karashi-iro

KARASHI

The sahara color presents an optimistic character, with its warm & elemental aesthetic illustrating a cheerful vibe for the wearer. From the natural aging of the hand-patinaed leather to the engravement of Hiroshige-sensei’s poem; the idea of finding beauty in nostalgia is exemplified in the beautiful karashi-iro strap which portrays an ever-growing unique beauty as the leather naturally ages.

HIROSHIGE SCRIPT

All Hiroshige straps are engraved with legendary Ukiyo-e artist Utagawa Hiroshige’s original handwritten poem from an original artwork ca. 1840. The poem is loosely translated as: 'The moon indulges into the night in various ways.' 

HAND PATINA

Each leather strap is further hand-dyed using the anticatura patina technique, bringing an additional level of character and refinement to Hiroshige straps. No two leather patina products will ever look the same, and they will over time take on their own character and personality by building on the original patina as it ages.
