AlaskaThe attraction of each is wild and natural grain.
As you use it, the wax on the surface rubs off and the natural look of the leather appears, as in spring Alaska, where nature began to look out from white snow.
History of HITOE®
SYRINX's HITOE® series is a wallet that has earned a lot of attention as it has achieved numerous records, including the highest amount of crowdfunding in Japan.
The long wallet, which updated the domestic maximum amount of wallets (* as of January 2019, 1), has been significantly upgraded. Reborn as "HITOE L-zip L".
Simply (only), that's it
"I want to go out lightly with my hands without having a bag!"
The HITOE® series was born to fulfill that desire.
"Light and comfortable comfort"
Functionality, portability, storage capacity. I am convinced that HITOE® that has all these features will enrich your life.
"HITOE® (single) structure" that stands out thinness
The reason why the wallet is thicker is because the card and the coin overlap. The solution to this is the HITOE® (single) structure (patent office design registered). Instead of stacking cards and coins, they are distributed horizontally, making it much thinner than conventional wallets.
In addition, there are more than 10 common leather wallets.HITOE® is small4 pieces. This is the smallest wallet that can hold the coins and cards surveyed.
20 bills, 15 coins, and 16 cards. Even with this much storage, the wallet is about 15mm thick. For a typical wallet, 30mm or more. It is overwhelmingly thin.
Challenge to "thick leather"
The characteristic of this leather is that the oil penetrates deep into the fibers. If thinly strained, the original texture of the leather will be lost and the strength will also deteriorate.
"Leather remains thick, but the wallet is thin." We challenged and reached this conflicting challenge with HITOE®.For the exterior, "genuatsu" leather with a thickness of about 2 mm, which allows you to fully enjoy the original charm of leather. However, the central wallet is only 7mm thick. It is a "thin wallet" of "thick leather" that has never existed before.
Upgrade to HITOE L-zip L to the one and only existence
HITOE L-zip L makes use of the many voices received in the previous model and thoroughly improves the points of concern. It has been reborn as a wallet that is not only thin but also plenty.
Improvement XNUMX Thinner and smarter
"I want to insert a little more cards."
Improve based on the voice sent to the long wallet of the previous work.
In the previous work, up to 1 cards could be put together in one pocket. However, the larger the number, the thicker and more bulky it becomes difficult to find the card you want.
So instead of multi-pockets, we increased the number of card pockets to two. By distributing cards in two places, even more cards can be used "thinner and smarter".
The hint was HITOE L-zip S. Due to other concerns in advance, the extremely shallow coin pocket received many negative reviews, saying that it was "easy to use" without negative comments. Supported by that voice, the long wallet also drastically made the coin pocket shallower and increased the card pocket to two places.
Improvement point XNUMX Custom-made puller
The fastener puller is an original tool whose mold is custom made to YKK. A simple design consisting of straight lines and arcs, and no logo on the table. It is hard to be caught in the pocket, unnecessary force is not applied to the slider, and durability has been increased.
The logo is engraved small on the back to make it inconspicuous. It is convex and also serves as non-slip. When viewed from the side, the thicker tip is the result of sticking to the pinch.
Although it is a small part, SYRINX's philosophy on design is condensed.
Improvement point XNUMX Polishing edge
The edge of the leather edge has been polished.
We are worried that the edge of the paint that is generally adopted will crack or peel off over time. It takes time, but there is no need to worry about polishing the edge, and the more you use it, the more it tastes.
6 thoughtful ease of use
01 Smartphone, passport, bank passbook
A typical long wallet is too thick to hold a smartphone. However, even if the contents are thin, "HITOE®" allows you to carry a smartphone with you in your wallet. Also includes a large iPhone XS Max.
When I started using "HITOE®", my commute changed first. You no longer need to carry a bag with you to put your wallet and iPhone, and now you just put this wallet in your pocket and commute to work. And on weekdays lunch, when you go out to play with your children on weekends, you can shop ... Always accompanied by "HITOE®". Both hands can realize free-handed life, and there is no hassle.
It can also store bank passbooks and passports, and can be used overseas as a passport case and wallet.
02 The shallower coin pocket is easier to use
If the coin pocket is deep, you will not be able to find and remove coins smoothly. HITOE®'s shallow, wide open coin pocket lets you quickly find and retrieve the coin you need. If you close the zipper, you don't have to worry about coins spilling. It is shallow but can hold 20 coins. The maximum number of coins that can be used without waste is ¥ 999 = 15 coins (* photo), but there is still room.
03 Plenty of cards
There are two card pockets.Next to the coin pocketHealth insurance card used with cash, point card, etc.BelowIt is convenient to store a license or credit card used alone.
When you close the zipper, you don't have to worry about accidentally dropping an important card.
04 Smartless, convenient double fastener
A special fastener with sliders at both ends has been adopted.
If there is only one slider, the card under the coin pocket cannot be used unless it is wide open. Double fasteners provide quick access with minimal movement. There is no need to worry about suddenly dropping coins.
If you open the two fasteners to the side of the coin pocket as shown in the picture, you can use the card and cash all at the same time.
05 Shape easy to put in and out of pocket
HITOE® has one end thinly bound. Therefore, putting it in and out of the pocket is smooth without getting caught.
06 Durable fastener EXCELLA
YKK's top-level fastenersEXCELLAAdopted.EXCELLAIs a fastener with extremely high dimensional accuracy and little play in meshing. For this reason, it may be hard to start using the product, and you may feel a little bit caught, but by using it, it will gradually become smoother.
The cheaper the fastener, the greater the play of the dimensions and the lighter the movement. However, the bite is sweet and can cause bites, disengagement and trouble. Carefully polished the entire surface of the element one by one, exquisite EXCELLAIs the best zipper you can use for a long time.
Careful tailoring by Japanese leather craftsmen
SYRINX's lean minimal design requires high precision. For this reason, SYRINX products are not mass-produced in factories, but carefully selected from small workshops in Japan that have high technical skills, and we have carefully realized SYRINX's commitment.

The leather used for "Natura" is made in Santa Croce, Tuscany region of Italy, which is said to be the birthplace of plant tanning. It uses thick and high quality raw hide from France and Argentinian Kepracho tannin that is thoroughly selected.
> The surface is waxed and then put in a drum to give it a wild and natural texture.
Deepening colors and aging
As you use it, the wax on the surface will rub and disappear. The original look of leather appears, like the earth in spring when nature begins to peek out of white snow.
With the wax on the surface and natural grain, it is hard to be scratched. By using it for a long time, you can deepen the color and luster and enjoy the real pleasure of aging.
Scratches and stains are not hidden by embossing or pigment, so they remain. However, it is a proof that it is the highest quality natural leather that you can enjoy the texture of the hide. We hope that you accept wounds and stains as one and only personality.
Because it is a leather that grows together, it is also a great gift for a new start such as enrollment, promotion, or employment.
"Natura" aging example
Cammello(Camel): Classic color. The wax remaining on the grain is removed and gradually changes to a candy color.
Grafite(graphite): Dark gray like graphite appears from under the light gray color.
No oil care required
A lot of oil soaks into the fibers, and the more you use it, the oil contained inside will ooze out from the pores, coating the epidermis and giving a gloss.
Therefore, no oil care is required. Waterproof sprays and other coatings are also prohibited. The leather cannot breathe and hardens.
Doing nothing and giving the leather a moderate stimulus is the best maintenance.
Individuality of "Natura"
"Natura" has not only scratches and spots, but also large facial textures, small grain textures, and almost no grain textures. Please understand that no one is the same.
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.
