Leather Type

There are three types of leather selected to BROOKLYN MUSEUM items.
Calf imported from Europe, daily steer imported from North America, and Japanese beef leather.

A rare and high -quality calf worldwide.
In Europe, calfs are supplied as by -products based on culture such as French cuisine, and many of the best bick maison selected due to its good quality.
As a result, market requests from all over the world are flooded, making it difficult to obtain, but Brooklyn Museum has been able to purchase stable purchases with the relation ship cultivated in 40 years, and the community formation with the supplier is large. It is an asset.

Daily steer is a dairy cow male.
Dairy cow female is bred as meat to remove milk. With the improvement of artificial insemination technology, the castrated male personality is very quiet and there are few scratches.
The difference between North America and Nippon Hara is fiber.
In North America, the fiber is soft and supple by spending a vast land and eating grains.
In Japan, it is carefully raised in limited land and eats grass, making it a thin and delicate finish.

Creating things that can be inherited to the next generation.

Aiming for the "richer" expression we draw, we carefully select the selection of the raw leather -producing area, the quality control, and the dyeing method in it, and output it into a product.

Leather Working Group

An organization that clears environmental and social compliance on a high standard and examines the impact on environmental protection and regional conservation activities on international standards

It is composed of leather -related brands, tanners, and drug manufacturers, and is now a global standard, and has been certified as a luxury brand.

565 companies

The number of tanners that have been certified by LWG worldwide. Among the tens of thousands of tanners, only companies that have passed all items, such as energy, water used, waste management, and scrutiny in the working environment, can be obtained. For this reason, a strict examination has been made for the first time, which is said to be 90%rejected.

12.1 billionℓ

The average amount of water that is reduced by tanners and manufacturers in the world that has received LWG authentication every year. The ratio of LWG authentication tanners is about 23%in the world's leather production. Approximately 3.9 billion ft to the amount of leather2。 It continues to be reduced every day due to various capital investment and environmental consideration.

One company

The only Tanner in Japan, the Tanner, has been certified by LWG. Until 2018, the provision of sustainable leather was realized over two years, such as replacement of facilities, replacing drugs, and optimizing staffing by data management of work processes.

Prosperity Leather Industrial Office [HYOGO -JAPAN]

In November 2018, he obtained LWG certification for the first time in Japan. For more than 90 years since its founding in 1928, it has been consistent leather.
All production systems have been developed from raw skin procurement to finish, and production recipes are fully data. 4-5 times a year, an engineer invited a technician from the home Italy, and the finish that matches the world trend and Japanese skilled technology is attractive.

Persimmon astringity

Tanner: Prosperity Leather Industrial Office

“Leather to return to the soil”

"Is it possible to finish leather with natural dyes?" The persimmon dyeing dyed in 2003 was born in a time when mass production and mass consumption became popular around the world.
While the harmful effects of air pollution and water pollution began to be shouted, I continued to ask what the leather industry could do.

"You should be able to make leather that can be used with more thoughts with natural things without load in the environment."

The leather completed after repeated prototypes with the supplier is . The wood grain -like pattern is a hand -dyed brush.Above all, it is difficult to create this brush, and it is one and only in the industry.
However, the tanner, which had been supported from the beginning, was out of business due to lack of successors. Brooklyn Museum took all the persimmon astringent leather that was in the tanner, and it has been working so far.

"I can't help but get persimmon astringent dyeing." I managed to look for a tanner that could reproduce this brush, but the days were just flowing.
At that time, I was able to meet the prosperous leather industrial office.

Those who love leather are pouring passion into technology, and they have been trying many times and revived. Not only the dye, but also tanning and finishing can be returned to the soil by not relying on chemicals.

Craftsmanship and pride.
It is a leather that attracts the world.

Indigo dye

DYEING: Aizhuya [tokushima -JAPAN]

A color colored by the balance between blue and purple.
Tokushima Prefecture designated intangible cultural property "Awa Masayo Ai Dye". Instead of chemical dyes, we met us who were particular about this "Japan Blue" in a workshop that has been protecting traditional crafts as a cotton fabric Oromoto since its founding. Thin dyeing is a completely different know -how, tanning, dyeing, aperture, and finishing, all methods have been discussed for many years, and indigo -dyed leather is finally born.
It does not dye at once because the leather is dyed with the power that survived nature. A bright blue that emerges by spending time and effort to the indigo "mood". And the uniform feeling that is not uniform will make you realize that it is a natural beauty.
The goodness of indigo dyeing is that it is not only a texture but also a sustainable dyeing method. It is a natural proof that you can touch the dye with your bare hands. It is a leather full of craftsmanship that has been snuggling up to the environment for hundreds of years.

Among the Code Vannner, which is said to have only two companies in the world, Japan is the only tanner, the only tanner that Japan is proud of, to the Redel Ogawa for shaving, dyeing and finishing.
By soaking plenty of oil from general cordovan, it is a finish that combines supple strength and firmness from the moment you get it. Then, the color creation of Brooklyn Museum is expressed by the tag with Redel Ogawa, which is said to be the best dyeing technology.
It is a valuable leather that can be a lifetime as the rare value is increased on a global scale and high quality cordovan is difficult to obtain.
