Meeting a craftsman - Hiroan
We were able to learn about the basics of leather crafts from Mr. Hasegawa, a representative of 博庵 (Hiroan), who has a master craftsmanship which is succeeded for three generations.
Mr. Hasegawa's acknowledged expertise about leather crafts are trustworthy. He has answers to any questions about the processing method of leather, the characteristics of the materials, and the maintenance method for each leather.
We are all impressed by the meticulous works of Hiroan brand. For example, He is skilled to make ultra thin leather product by assembling two pieces of leather so that gives strength to it. In addition, he is very particular about the manual technique to burnish leather edges with minute attention to detail.
