The flow of the TIDE.Expressing the flow of emotions found in the foundation of craftsmanship,products that change the trends of the times.

Our company in Higashikagawa have manufactured a wide variety of patchwork applied bags using techniques born from leather glove production.
However, the current trend is moving towards simpler low cost products.

We chose to make our prided patchwork a brand symbol and launched a product brand that challenges the flow of future craftsmanship to change.
