新 し いHITOE®, A small "thin wallet"
Pursuing not only "thin" but also "small" walletsHITOE®The evolution of the series, that is this "HITOE FOLD".
In pursuit of the ultimately simple design, smooth use, sufficient storage capacity, and ideals suitable for the cashless era, we have designed and designed ourselves.
Small and thin leather wallet
"Thinness stands out"HITOE®(Single) structure "
The wallet gets thicker because the cards and coins overlap.The solution to this is "HITOE®(Single) structure ".It is overwhelmingly thinner than conventional wallets without stacking cards and coins.
Overlapping leather, only four, a total of about 4-6mm.
10 bills, 15 coins, 6 cards. Even with plenty of storage, it is overwhelmingly thin.
Unique three-dimensional shape realizing compactness
About 9cm square. Small "thin wallet"
There are multiple wallets that do not overlap cards and coins.
"HITOE FOLDHas achieved the smallest (*) among them. I arrived at cards, coins, and just size. It's so compact that it can't be cut any further.
"HITOE Compared to "L-zip S", it is 32% smaller. (* As of 2020.2.8, according to our research)
Area ratio isHITOE FOLD100%
"Thin leather" "thin wallet"
This leather is characterized by its moist texture, where oil penetrates deep into the fibers. If thinly strained, the original texture of the leather will be lost and the strength will deteriorate.
"Leather is thick, but the wallet is thin." We challenged and reached this contradictory challenge.HITOE®.
For the exterior, we adopted a thick leather of about 2 mm, which allows you to fully enjoy the original charm of leather. (* Inside is 1.2mm thick)
The exterior is about 2 mm thick leather
9 thoughtful ease of use
Not just thinness and compactness. We are particular about the smart feeling.
1 Patent application flap
We invented a unique way to hang the triangular leather at the top right of the flap on the card to be stored.
It acts as a fastener and prevents the card from accidentally falling.
Triangle fastener on top right of flap
Prevents sudden card drops
2 Put it in leather, that's it.
Simple appearance just sandwiched between leather. The clasp does not stick out and there is no catch in the pocket. No metal is used, so you don't have to worry about damaging your clothes or cards.
Constructed only with leather without using any hardware
3 Quickly open and close with a "dogleg"
With a single action that bends the border between the card and the coin into a “C” shape, the flap fastener can be easily removed.
When opened, you can handle coins, banknotes, cards, all at the same time, and quickly check out.
Bends into a "shaped" and can be opened and closed smoothly
4 Banknotes as they are
Just insert the bill without breaking it. Because the upper half is visible, it is easy to take it out. A small cover in the coin pocket prevents the bills and coins from rubbing.
Can be stored without breaking the receipt
5 Cards smoothly
The lower right corner of the card pocket has been cut out to hook the flap fasteners. Thanks to that, you can put the card in and out smoothly. Also, your finger goes deep into the back of the card, making it easier to grasp.
Cards are easy to get in and out of corners
6 shallow coin pocket
If the coin pocket is deep, it will not be possible to find and take out coins smoothly.HITOE®With a shallow coin pocket, you can quickly find and retrieve the coins you need.If you close the flap, you don't have to worry about coins spilling.
999 yen worth (15) coin pocket enough to put
7 Hard to lose shape
If the stitch margin is large, it will easily lose its shape, butHITOE FOLD"Has no extra binding anywhere. Therefore, it is hard to lose shape. Also, at first, the leather is hard, so the bends swell and feel thick. However, it becomes more familiar and thinner as you use it.
Lean minimal shape
8 The more you use it, the more beautiful and functional it is
At the beginning of use, the outer part of the leather is thick and hard, so the bent part swells and feels thicker than the dimensions. In addition, the coins are easy to make a jarring sound and are easily biased to one place.
However, by using it, the leather becomes familiar, the wallet becomes thinner, and the sound calms down. At the same time, coin bias is improved.
For the same reason, banknotes that were easy to slip at first are also hard to slip.
"The more you use, the more beautiful and functional"
This is a common policy for SYRINX products.
Change thinner as you use
Commitment to Made in TOKYO
SYRINX's minimal design requires high precision. Therefore, instead of mass-producing the factory, we carefully select workshops with high technical skills in Japan and carefully realize SYRINX's commitment.
This product is made by stacking 3 layers of leather and stitching the part that is about 4.5 mm with a binding margin of only 2 mm. Also, due to the three-dimensional shape, it is necessary to stitch while flattening the bulging part.
These challenges were overcome by Japanese leather craftsmen with high technical skills and craftsmanship. In addition, the edge of the leather is cut and polished, and the edges are finely lined with a heated iron to ensure the finest details without compromise.
From design to die-cutting and sewing, everything is done in Tokyo, and we deliver the world-class Made in TOKYO quality.
In pursuit of simplicity, the inscription is hidden under the card
About production volume
This product is produced by a limited number of highly skilled craftsmen, so that the production volume is limited. If mass production is carried out at overseas factories, etc., it can be delivered to more people quickly, but for that purpose, compromises must be made in detail and quality. That is not the direction that SYRINX aims for.
I think that the situation that makes you wait for a long time will continue for a while. However, your understanding will support SYRINX's commitment.
We will do our best to deliver it as soon as possible, so we appreciate your understanding.
Intellectual Property Protection Initiatives

Q. Are there any tips for opening and closing?
A. You can use it smoothly if you bend the boundary between the coin and the card into a "K" shape.
Q. There is distortion when closed
A. This is caused by the misuse of triangular leather on the outside of your wallet. Please use it only on the card.
Q. Does the triangular leather with flap corners stretch while you use it?
A. The dimensions are determined by calculating that it will grow a little. By getting used to, it just becomes better.
Q. Are the coins overflowing?
A. Coins will not overflow when the wallet is closed.Even when opened or slightly downward, the coin pocket lid keeps coins in place and does not overflow.HITOEI think you can use it with the most peace of mind in the series.
Q. Is it surprisingly thick?
A. HITOEThis applies to the entire series, but because it uses thick leather for the exterior, it has a solid texture and makes it easier to feel thicker than the dimensions.Furthermore, since the leather is initially hard, the bent part tends to swell and becomes thicker. After using it for 2 to 3 months, the leather will gradually become familiar and thin.
Q. Is there no bill restraint?
A. There is no reliever.When you open your wallet, please hold the bill with your finger to open it.
Q. Why are coins jarring?
A. The reason is that the coin is easy to move from side to side. If you put the coin pocket in the pocket vertically, you will hear almost no sound. Also, by using it for a long time, the leather becomes familiar, the wallet becomes thinner, and the sound becomes calm.
Q. What should I do with the receipt?
A. Please store the receipts under the banknotes.
Q. What causes the first bill to shift?
A. This is due to uneven friction between the left and right, and the fact that your finger touches when you open it. Please use while adjusting it appropriately. In particular, if you bend it diagonally when opening and closing, the banknotes will be more likely to slip.
By using it for a while, the leather on the bent part becomes familiar and the wallet becomes thinner. Along with that, banknotes are also less likely to shift.
Q. How long does it take for the leather to adapt?
A. Thickness and hardness differ depending on the lot, and it depends on the usage, so it cannot be said unequivocally, but I think it will take about 2 to 3 months. The best maintenance is to use it often. Please refrain from oil care as it will be too much oil.
Thank you for your continued patronage.
"Liscio"(Risho)" means "smooth" in Italian.The leather used in this series is "Vacetta leather", which has been handed down in Tuscany, Italy since the beginning of the 9th century.This leather is tanned with natural tree tannins and carefully soaked with oil.The biggest feature is that it mainly uses neatsfoot oil in the greasing process, and it has a unique suppleness.Neatsfoot oil does not easily penetrate into leather, and it takes time to penetrate deep into the fibers.However, once it penetrates, it is hard to come off, and you can enjoy the moisturized and glossy leather quality almost forever.
With its smoothness that sticks to it, it has a beautiful and deeply beautiful color and stands out among the many Italian leathers.
Deepening colors and aging
Vivid and transparent coloring is done only with dyes. The scratches and stains remain as they are because they are not hidden by embossing or pigment. However, the fact that you can enjoy the texture of raw leather as it is is the proof that it is the highest quality natural leather. Please accept scratches and stains as a unique character.
The leather finished with dye deepens the color as you use it, and you can enjoy aging. When it comes to aging, there is no leather to the right of Vachetta leather. It is beautiful, and the color and luster deepen in a short time.
Because it is a leather that grows together, it is also a great gift for a new start such as enrollment, promotion, or employment.
Smooth and sticky texture. There is a transparent feeling that you can see the expression of the raw leather. The more you use it, the deeper the color and luster.
Cammello(Camel): Classic color. Gradually beautiful candy.
Fragola(Strawberry): From bright vermilion to deep brick.
Piombo(lead): From gray brown to deep dark brown with low saturation
Lattuga(lettuce): From beautiful young leaf color to olive color with deep luster.
Agave(Agave): Blue-green gradually darkens.
Nero(black): From matte expression to gradually glossy black.
No oil care required
I think that the surface of ordinary leather is shiny from the beginning. However, the oil on the surface volatilizes over time, loses its luster and becomes dry. That is why regular oil care is essential.
This leather has a matte look with no luster. This is because even if you do not apply oil to the surface, the oil will soak into the fibers and the leather will not dry. The more you use it, the oil contained inside will ooze out from the pores and coat the epidermis to give it a glossy appearance. Therefore, no oil care is needed.
Please note that adding ready-made leather oil may cause the leather to become over-oiled and become too soft.
Doing nothing and giving the leather a moderate stimulus is the best maintenance.
The surface is soft and easily scratched because it is not coated, but some scratches will recover naturally if rubbed with a finger. Deep wounds become familiar with aging and change into leather texture.
About white powder
Since it is a very oily leather, the oil component that oozes out from the pores may become white powder depending on the temperature, humidity and ventilation conditions.
This is the same phenomenon as bridle leather bloom, etc., not a product defect.
It is especially noticeable in winter, when the temperature is low, and it may look like a mold, but it can be easily wiped off with a soft cloth. (Parts that are difficult to remove finely, such as stitches, disappear when heated.)
These symptoms are one of the good properties of oily leather. We appreciate your understanding.
The cattle are grazed on the ranch so that they can grow healthy without stress. The cow is engraved with the "living proof (natural mark)" on the leather.
Like this leather, the finish that makes use of the base material without hiding it with pigments or embossing may have a natural mark.
The Natural Mark is a proof of good quality natural leather, and as you use it, it becomes the unique taste of the product.
Rose wound / bloodline
It is a trace of small scratches and insect bites when bumping or fighting.The more you grow up in an environment closer to nature, the more you grow.Depth, length, and size vary depending on the individual.
It is often found on both the grain and floor after blood vessels.
It is a trace of deep wrinkles that are often seen from around the neck to along the spine.Italian leather is popular because it is said that the more tigers there are, the more beautiful it is.The fiber density is the highest around the spine, and there is no problem with strength.
Color unevenness may occur due to differences in fiber density.Due to the unevenness of the leather quality, it is unavoidable as long as the leather is a natural material.
Please note that it is a unique leather personality.
If SYRINX products are used for their original purpose within the scope of common sense, a warranty period of one year from the date of purchase is provided for material and structural defects.
