yuruku : clap latch handbag


or make 4 interest-free payments of $132.00 AUD fortnightly with More info


Made entirely by hand in Japan by Yuruku Takanashi, YURUKU leather bags speak of the rare quality an eagle eye will spot at 30 paces. Not a stitch is out of place, not a single detail of line, function or finish has gone unconsidered.  Quietly displaying the finest grade leather and smooth timbers, clever attachments, and the most rigorous construction techniques we've seen, these bags are minimalist in conception, alive with warmth and imagination.

An unmistakably original and distinctive design, the simple lines of this bag are anything but simple to achieve. Years of practice and extraordinary patience go into producing work of this quality, with skill and discernment evident in every seam and curve. The timber top has a indentation for easy opening, and closes with a satisfying magnetic clap. The bag includes a single internal pocket with zip, and a rolled leather shoulder strap with sliding leather pad for comfortable wear. Dust bag included.
