Still bright and colorful after 100 years, these deadstock cotton plaids and prints bring a classic accent to the natural hues of leather.

Antique Japanese Fabric
Straight from the antiquities market in Japan, these hand-dyed, hand-loomed indigo fabrics date to the Edo and Meiji periods (19th and early 20th century).

We use the fabric to add a beautiful proportion of sky to the earth tones of our leather wallets and bracelets.
