Long-established leather craftsmen group
Since its founding in 1946, Ninomiya Goroh Shohten established a classic style with its traditional craftsmanship.

From cutting and end thinning, to sewing and finishing, one craftsman handles the whole process
Outstanding leather goods made by hand
No matter how manufacturing technologies develop, our leather goods are always made by hand. From bags to purses and other small items, our products are handmade by our craftsmen with outstanding skill at each stage of production. Craftsmen with decades of experience create products through pattern making, mold insertion, cutting, preparation, sewing, metal attachment and finishing, with utmost attention.
All our leather products are originals, fully tailor made. We never use standardised products but use the most appropriate select leather, according to our customers’ requests and considering how the product will be used.
The finished product has a sense of warmth, something you cannot experience with machine made leather products.
Craftsmanship - combining traditional and new methods
At Ninomiya Goroh Shohten, skill succession from the master to the student is given to those who have cleared a rigorous assessment.
Each artisan is able to handle each stage of leather product making, based on the same production method that has been passed on from generation to generation.
When producing original products, such as those for luxury brands, the design is created imagining the person using the product.
