Yakushika's leather products are carefully hand-sewn one by one every day.。
We will deliver the blessings of Yakushima to everyone.。
Yakushima is exterminating Yakushika to protect the forest environment. Deer, which have grown too much in an environment where there are no natural enemies, not only destroy the forest ecosystem, but also cause serious damage to crops. It is said that 12,000 to 16,000 Yakushika live on the entire island, and about 5,000 Yakushika are exterminated every year.
Most of the exterminated deer had been discarded and buried, but in recent years they have been processed into meat and their leather is now available. Yakushika's soft, supple and durable leather is sewn one by one with all our heart in order to be reborn as a leather product that can be used for a long time.
In order to connect the blessings nurtured by the eternal forest to the future without wasting it, we donate a part of the sales to the"Yakushima Mountains Environmental Conservation Cooperation Fund". Thanks to the blessings of the forest, hunters, leather craftsmen, and many who love Yakushima and its products.
