Japan's Y'2 Leather was founded in 1998, by artisans with over 45 years of experience in the manufacturing of leather jackets. Since then, they've been producing some of the very best and most unique leather goods in all of Japan, working directly with tanneries to produce fully custom and unusual leathers of the highest quality to pair with each new style.
Their decades of knowledge collide with these custom leathers on the workshop floor, where Y'2 Leather can blend vintage techniques and styles with modern sensibilities to create familiar silhouettes in new and exciting materials.
The Kakishibu Type-I Jacket is a spectacular example of Y'2 doing what they do best, reimagining a classic style in an incredible custom horsehide that looks stellar from day one and ages quickly and drastically. The leather itself is difficult to produce and sensitive to work with, as this isn't just any natural (undyed) veg-tan leather, this horsehide is tanned and dyed with persimmons.
