Happy belated new year! I wish you had a cozy, relaxing and fun Christmas and new year even though we are still in the difficult situation with this Pandemic. 遅ればせながら、あけましておめでとうございます。緊急事態宣言も発令され、まだまだ世界は難しい状況にありますが、年末年始は少しリラックスしてゆっくり過ごされましたか？
One of the good thing last year was I finally managed to join the event at Ringo no Ki. There were flower market by Florist flyers, hand made Jewelry by stonej.e and leather products! It was such a lovely day with sunny beautiful weather and quite many people came.
This coin purse is one of the first purse I made for my father when I’ve just started leather craft. Since then he uses it everyday. As you can see the video above an old button is almost useless after many years of daily use. You can see how I replace to new one today!
First, you need to take the old button carefully not to give any damage to the leather.
Since the leather is turned into nice and beautiful light brown color, I replace to new brass button this time. You could hear the sound is totally different with new button! Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or request for repairing.
Here is the one of the most popular product. This key ring is made with very fine Italian leather. Especially this beautiful light brown color leather and gold color parts combination is popular for female customers. On the other hand, the combination with silver color parts inspire you chic and cool so, it could perfectly fit male customers as well. It’s very chic and elegant. I’m happy to take request to stamp on it if you would like to make it more special.
I’ll show you more details of this beautiful mustard yellow colored leather smart phone purse since we are getting orders of yellow color products theses days. I guess you might get some inspiration from the nature when you see the colors of leaves. I just love to see those beautiful colors especially in this season.
Had so much fun to make this bespoke purse. First had a meeting with a client to collect all the requests and ideas. I always bring some samples for the meeting which could help the client to get some more imagination clearly. As a client’s request I hand dyed a leather to this mustard yellow.
This time chose dark green fabric for lining with a small card sleeve and made another card sleeve outside of the purse as a request. You can see the color combinations of mustard yellow and dark green, isn’t it nice?
Finally I have reopened online shop on Etsy for people who live in EU or other contries except Japan. I will list more products there though you could already order popular products such as key rings, pouches and mask strap etc…! Simply open Etsy and type my name: shokoigeta or click here and please have a look!
For people who in Japan and would like to order me through online shop, I recommend to gominne since I have already listed more products there. 日本国内からのオーダーに関しては、もちろん私に直接ご連絡も可能ですが、オンラインショッピングは既に開設いる品揃えの多いminneをお勧め致します。
Feel free to send me any request or questions directly!
