Boro Zipper Wallet, Vertical Shima, Katazome and Kasuri
Made just the right size to fit in your pocket, with an inner pocket to hold the cards you use most. Each piece is made with high-quality, traditional Japanese fabrics, for a unique look and special meaning behind each piece.
Boro is a utilitarian material. Originally a product of the working class (the farmers, craftsmen, and artists) it represents a time when everything including a scrap of fabric was precious. Born from a period when Japan closed its ports to foreign goods, fabrics like cotton became extremely precious and rare. These materials were saved and repurposed from each generation to the next.
Made here in Portland with durable brass findings, and lined with rail stripe canvas.
