irose is a brand of small leather goods founded by two designers, Gen and Dai Takahashi. The word "irose" is an ancient word meaning "brother" and is believed to be the origin of the word "colour". Their products are made in Japan with high quality leather and attention to detail. The design is unique, with a three-dimensional structure reminiscent of architecture or origami, using Japanese craftsmanship such as folding and assembling a single piece of leather without sewing, or carefully hand-crinkling high-quality pigskin one by one.
