Shoko Igeta・Profile

shoko_igeta is a hand made leather products brand has a concept as “enjoy the changing”.
Everything in this world is changing like the weather, trend, our life and of course the leather as well.
Our goal is to enjoy the changing instead of struggling or fight against these of changes to make our life more precious.

The leather will change the color and texture as time goes by this is very much like our aging.  If you have well made leather products  with very fine designed and materials you will enjoy these entire changing procedure in your life long.

Not only to achieve the goal but also to be grateful and respect all the beautiful materials,  I carefully chose very fine materials. Also to make the material shine designed simply but at the same time beautiful and practical. And of course all hand made so that will belong your life.

shoko_igetaは”変化を楽しむ”をコンセプトとしたハンドメイドのレザー小物ブランドです。
天気や、トレンド、私たちの生活、私たち自身・・・もちろんレザー同様にこの世の中は常に変化しています。
この変化にあらがうのでのではなく楽しむことができれば人生をより楽しく実りあるものにできるはずです。
私たち人間が年を取ると見た目が変化していくのと同様、レザーも月日を経て色や艶など変化していきますが、上質な材料と、飽きの来ないデザイン、手間暇かけてしっかりと作られた物は月日が経ってからの変化も美しく、その変化を生活の一部として楽しんでいただけます。
このコンセプトにはレザーという美しい素材(命)をいただいてできていることへの感謝と敬意を示すという意味も込められているため、素材選びには最新の注意を払い、上質な素材と、その素材の美しさを最大限引き出せるようなシンプルで美しく機能的なデザインで心を込めて一針一針丁寧に手作業で仕上げています。

Shoko Igeta (井下田 祥子)

Born in Chiba, Japan 1980’s.

I’m Berlin based designer for leather products. All of my products are self designed and hand made with high quality Italian leather. I fell in love with leather craft when I stayed in Australia and started to learn and make small things such as wallet, small bags, belts etc… during that period, I learned very basic skills how to produce and how to make the pattern etc. Then I found an order made belts shop in Berlin; “Hoffnung Berlin”. and started to work as an intern since I was hoping to learn more new skills. and now, I’m still working there to design new leather accessories.

Also, I launched my own hand made leather products brand shoko_igeta. at the same time, launched web shop both for Japan. The web shop for EU is currently unavailable though please contact me directly if you would like to order.
