Each and every one of these purses have been made by hand with love, using techniques that are typically used for kimonos. Asakusa Bunko leather products are not only perfect in design, but in practicality, created with amazing techniques and with ‘Japanese’ embedded into the product itself. 

Leather Products Created Using Techniques for Kimonos 

Each and every line is colored with skill and precision 
With design and beauty not found in others, it has a unique sense of luxury. The predecessor-Asakusa Bunko, was a kimono maker. This luxury is created by the careful craftsmanship of each of the dyeing techniques required for making kimono, such as "Kata Yuzen" and "Handwritten Yuzen".


Like the letters, each stroke is colored by the craftsman's hand. By adding "Hand-painted Yuzen" to "Kata Yuzen", we can add depth to the shadows and express the softness and warmth of the pattern. Asakusa Bunko is the only company in Japan that uses these two techniques, "Kata Yuzen" and "Hand-painted Yuzen". 


Sewn by 40-year Veteran Craftsmen 

The craftsmen, or we should call them artisans use both a hand-feed and flat stitch sewing machine .

After the hand-drawn “yuzen” dyeing has been completed, it’s time to move onto the process of making the drawn shapes three dimensional. A machine that can output over 100 tonnes of force is used to press the shapes into the leather. Finally, it’s time to sew. Sewing into uneven leather is extremely difficult, and typical manufacturers cannot create a clean finish doing this, however, as Asakusa Bunko, some of the best sewers in the business with over 40 years of history are employed to create these amazing pieces of art.
