Wako Co., Ltd. (Headquarters location: Chuo-ku, Tokyo, President: Shuntaro Ishii) will hold the “Momiji Leather Item Collection” on the 4th floor of the main store from December 8th (Thursday) to 21st (Wednesday), 2022. It will be held.
Momiji is a lifestyle brand established by actors Kenichi Matsuyama and Koyuki for the purpose of utilizing animal skins.
For the past three years, Mr. Matsuyama has been working to
exterminate pests such as wild boar, deer, and bears that damage crops in his fields. You seem to have seen the situation.
In recent years, due to changes in lifestyles and the global environment, the number of deer has exploded in Japan, affecting agriculture, forestry and mountain biodiversity. In order to solve this problem, each municipality is trying to control the population. In order not to waste their lives, the use of meat is increasing, but the use of skins has not progressed due to the uniqueness of wild animals and the difficulty of stable supply. Disposal is costly and incineration has an environmental impact. This animal skin is tanned to make it environmentally friendly and commercialized as an upcycled brand.
In this collection, in addition to accepting semi-orders for popular leather jackets, hats made in collaboration with various brands that support our activities, system notebook covers, slippers, custom-made boots, greeting cards, and other familiar items that we use every day. We have a wide range.
The patterns, wrinkles, and even scratches on each piece of Momiji leather items can be enjoyed as individuality, and can replace attachment. Such texture stands out. There are many things to learn, notice, and see in the connection between people and nature. Mr. Matsuyama believes that this connection becomes a precious treasure that cannot be converted into money.
Please feel the charm at the store while thinking about the story until it is completed as one product.
