Fun Facts About Japan and Leather Accessories

Japan has produced leather and made crafts for more than 2000 years.

  • Leather tanning was introduced to Japan by Korean craftsmen:Japanese first embraced the art of leather accessories from Korean immigrants as it is durable, comfortable, and warm, making it a popular choice for homes and as samurai armour. While you can find tanners and craftsmen throughout Japan, the prefecture of Hyogo is well-known for its white leather products. Unlike other white leather, Hyogo products derive their colour naturally during the tanning process.
  • Leather products became more luxurious: Japanese leather artisans expanded their craft from battle armour to creating luxury products such as handbags and decorative items. Their quality designs and natural beauty of the white leather began to get the attention of fashion designers around the world, helping to highlight the once overlooked Japanese tradition.
  • Japanese leather craftsmen offer workshops: You can find a variety of professional craftsmen in Japan who offer hands-on leather workshops. While travelling to Japan to make leather crafts is not an option for many, you can enjoy making accessories in your home with our selection of kits, tools and more.
