SYRINX's leather goods business had a unique start from "Mottainai".
Founded as an audio brand, SYRINX was characterized by speakers with soft bodies made of leather.
In our quest for leather that is good for sound, we came across Italian vacchetta leather, which has a beautiful color and gloss due to aging. However, manufacturing speakers produces a large amount of scrap wood.
We want to use up the life we have received with care.
With this in mind, we began to create leather items that utilize the scrap wood.
This policy is still carried on in various initiatives today.
An interview about SYRINX's SDG initiatives was featured on the SDG portal site " Spaceship Earth.

4 De-Plasticizing Packaging
Non-woven fabrics and OPP bags are also used extensively in the packaging of leather products.
In order to achieve this, the understanding of our customers is essential. We ask for your understanding that the outer box may receive bite or scuff marks during storage and transportation.
We also do not provide paper catalogs or brochures. We appreciate your understanding.
6 Protecting Hokkaido's Forests
Hokkaido's Ezo sika deer leather is promoted by more trees, an incorporated association headed by the late musician Ryuichi Sakamoto.
The Ezo sika deer, which inhabit the entire Hokkaido region, have a strong reproductive capacity and are increasing in number until they destroy all the vegetation in the forests. As a result, more than 100,000 deer have been captured each year in recent years. Their skins, however, are rarely put to effective use and discarded due to shotgun pellets, difficulty in processing, and wild wounds.
We, who have taken away the wolves, our natural enemy, for our own reasons, have a responsibility to respect and use the life of the Ezo sika deer, a blessing of the great nature of Hokkaido, to the very end, instead of wasting it.
It is with this in mind that the Ezo deerskin speaker " LOG" was born.
LOG " received the " Social Products Award 2018 Special Prize " for its significance.

In fact, many hides are still discarded today, but they have a high environmental impact and are said to emit five times as much carbon dioxide as leather tanning.
