Natural tanning

Our company primarily uses two individual types of tanning called “Himesansui” and “Shibusansui,” as well as our original “beef tallow tanning,” and “smoke tanning,” inspired by hunters.

  • White leather developed from Himeji white tanning

    This is a modern modification of Himeji’s tanning technique, which uses the photosynthesis of organic matter in the tanning process. The leather produced over this days-long process is even whiter than that made with Himeji white tanning.

    This tanning style, a traditional method passed down from Europe, uses plant tannins. Using liquids extracted from various kinds of vegetation, this technique has as many variations as there are types of plants.

    This tanning style, first used by hunters, tans the hides using straw smoke. It creates a unique texture, but requires a repeated treatment (over three to four months) to ease the smoke smell.
