Note (

  • Because of the natural dye, the color comes out little by little depending on the growth condition of the persimmon every year and the condition of the dye at the time of dyeing. Therefore, please understand because there is a difference between the image and the color.
  • Depending on the location of the leather, tigers (wrinkles in the neck) and white points of pores may remain. Don't worry, this is a characteristic of leather and not a click.
  • We try to reproduce the actual product as much as possible, but depending on the monitor and personal computer environment you are using, there may be differences in the way the colors look. Please understand in advance.
