yuruku : kukei bag in saddle


A refined 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. The structured outer panels lend this bag it's distinguished look, but hide a magnetically clasped gusset pocket and internal compartment with a surfeit of space.

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.
