Kobashi Studio Leather Card Case


This high-end card case is the ideal solution for anyone who wants to safeguard their business or personal cards in a slim, yet stylish, and top-quality leather holder. The brass-buttoned compartment allows you to carry your coins, cards, and cash with practical ease.

Cut from shining oiled finish leather sourced from a renowned, time-honored Japanese tannery located in Himeji, Hyogo prefecture, this card case boasts exceptional quality. The leather is exclusively vegetable-tanned, giving it a distinct, alluring scent.

The production of Himeji leather dates back to the early 1900s when a group of leather artisans from Osaka migrated to Himeji to start their own leather-making business. Today, Himeji leather is produced by a handful of skilled craftsmen who use traditional tanning and leather-making techniques that have been passed down from generation to generation.

The process of making Himeji leather involves tanning the rawhide with vegetable tannins derived from plant materials such as mimosa, quebracho, and sumac. This natural tanning process results in a leather that is firm, yet pliable, and has a unique texture and character.

One skilled craftsman in Chiba is responsible for all stages of the Kobashi wallet production, ensuring hand polished finish and high quality throughout. The wallet features a solid brass snap fastener made by the oldest snap fastener company in Chiba, which was established in 1909.

Kobashi Studio is a small Japanese Tokyo-based atelier specializing in solid brass accessories of the highest quality and detailing found today. Its founder Junichi Kobashi draws upon completely handcrafted production using vintage machinery and manual processes to create the most special and beautiful brass and leather pieces we have ever seen.
