Meeting up with Manifold in Tokyo

There may have been a bit of radio silence lately, but trust us when we say we've been keeping ourself busy. We just got back from an amazing trip to Japan, where we met up with the leather artisans from Manifold.

On May 19th we had a great dinner with Manifold's Yoshitaka Miyamoto and Aiko Okanaga in Tokyo. They honored us with awesome gifts - Ollie recieved a green wallet made out of cordovan leather, combined with a red-black woven wallet rope and a key holder. Daniel now owns a brand new black leather wallet and three brass key chains - Miyamoto-san and Okanaga-san, we can't thank you enough for these!

Remember the post from a while back where we mentioned the collaboration between DC4 and Manifold? In these pictures you can see the pattern and the cut leather pieces to manufacture the wallet. It's so detailed and well-made it blows our minds! We can't wait to receive the shipment and to be able to offer it to you.
