Born in Tokyo in 1976.
Beginning to ride on a motorcycle triggered my encounter with Leather. I discovered the color and time of each owner of leather items worn by the riders were inscribed in his.
Leather craft is originated in the floral designs so-called arabesque design.Based upon a beautiful stream of arabesque design, figures, animals ,landscapes ,etc are tooled on leather by a skill named Figuring.
Attracted by leather, I stepped into the World of Leather that is so large and deep. Among many skills, I was badly fascinated by such skill of Carving as can tool images out of the unfigured leather. Leather that really breathes. I take delight in inspiring further life into it. Carving is, in fact, an important treasure for my destination .
