Itagaki has been using vegetable tanned leather exclusively since the company was founded.
It began with the simple desire to make bags which would last a lifetime.
The Joys of Using Vegetable Tanned Leather
Vegetable tanned leather is a robust organic material. One of the pleasures of using vegetable tanned leather is that its texture softens over time and deepens in color through frequent use. While seemingly rigid at first, it becomes increasingly supple in response to the attention and love it receives in the hands of its owner. Flaps become more effortless to open and zippers easier to draw. Vegetable tanned leather provides an unparalleled enjoyment, that one can only discover when one has become familiar with using it.
Handing down technology
Itagaki leather products are carefully handcrafted by our expert craftsmen. Our wallets are precisely designed for specific purposes such as optimizing storage capacity while maintaining a compact structure. Ladies bags are designed to facilitate ease of organization and retrieval of items. Business bags are built to be durable and withstand rough use. We aim to design our products specifically for the types of people who use them.
During repairs, careful measures are taken in order to maintain the integrity of the leather. Itagaki products are crafted with the sincerest intentions of our craftsmen - to make products that are rich, durable and can be used for generations to come.
