https://www.itagaki. co.jp/), and on Saturday, February 25, we will hold a collaboration project-“Introduction to Leather & bar” to enjoy adult time.
An event where you can experience the production of tannin-tanned leather items that increase in color and luster the more you use them, and the creation of your own “ultimate” gin and tonic, and enjoy spending time with the “real thing” filled with the commitment of craftsmen and bartenders. am. We planned this as an entry event for customers who feel that the threshold is high due to the high-class atmosphere and prices, so that they can feel more familiar with tannin leather items and the hotel’s authentic bar.
The first collaboration with “bag tagaki”
Since its founding in 1982, Itagaki, which runs a bag workshop in Akabira City, Hokkaido, has been particular about “tannin-tanned leather” and continues to make bags with the handiwork of craftsmen. The presence and texture of the product, which takes time to complete, is irreplaceable, and it contains the joy of owning the real thing and the sincerity of craftsmen who aim to “make bags that last a lifetime.”
In 2022, we were asked to collaborate with companies celebrating their 40th anniversary, and this event came to fruition.
Tannin leather and authentic bar that are easy to feel high threshold For the next-generation customers (20s and 30s), tannin leather items and authentic bars tend to be avoided because of their high-class and stately atmosphere and prices. Therefore, I wanted to lower the psychological hurdles by holding an event that conveys knowledge about leather and bars and how to enjoy them in an easy-to-understand and polite manner, and by holding an event where you can actually experience the “real thing” with professional skills.
