The Art of Leatherwork: "Inden-Ya"
A Japanese family-run business has been devoted to the manufacture of leather products ornamented with Urushi lacquer since the 16th century. Back then, they mainly produced protective leather garments for Samurai warriors, and helmets. Today they make leather products for everyday use. The softest deer leather is smoke-stained and dyed using a traditional Indian technique. The decorative pattern is then silkscreened onto it by hand, using traditional Urushi lacquer made from natural tree resin. The surface has a tangible texture which is completely water-resistant and has a pleasant leathery smell.
