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. Only four HITOE®. This is the smallest wallet that can hold the coins and cards we 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"
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 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.

"Vaketta manufacturing method" transmitted to the Tuscany region of Italy from the early 9th century. Tempestee's Elbamat leather, which continues its tradition, is a leather that has been tanned with natural tannins and slowly soaked in oil. Vaccetta leather has the unique feature of using beef tallow in the fattening process and using no water at all, and has a unique flexibility. Tallow is difficult to penetrate into leather and takes time to penetrate deep into the fiber. However, once it penetrates, it is difficult to come off, and you can enjoy a luxurious and glossy leather almost permanently. Tempesti's patented Elbamat manufacturing method combines beef tallow and fish fat to infiltrate more oil into the leather.
Elbamat luxuriously uses only the torso (benz), which is the finest of the finest cow hides grown in the cold regions of the Nordic countries.
Elba mats infused with twice the usual amount of oil have a smooth, sticky, superbly beautiful color and luster and stand out among the many Italian leathers.
A member of the Italian Vegetable Tannin Leather Association.
Deepening colors and aging
The bright and transparent coloring of Elbamat is done with dyes only. Scratches and stains are not hidden by embossing or pigment, so they remain. However, it is 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 a unique personality.
The more leather you use, the deeper the color, the more you can enjoy aging. As for aging, there is no leather to the right of Vachetta leather. Above all, Elbamat's aging, which contains plenty of oil, is beautiful and deepens in a short time.
In Italy, leather-like natural texture is preferred, and the culture of enjoying aging is alive. Elbamat is one of the few Italian leathers that can inherit the Italian leather culture and enjoy its charm.
Because it is a leather that grows together, it is also a great gift for a new start such as enrollment, promotion, or employment.
Texas Aging example
"Texas," reminiscent of the dry wilderness of Texas, USATexas)"series. Oil nubuck with brushed silver surface (front side), more durable and longer lasting than suede with brushed floor. It features a soft and smooth touch like velvet and contains a lot of oil, so aging progresses very quickly. The more you use it, the more calm, brushed, and deeper the color.
Texas Agave(Texas Agave)A: From the shallow sea to the deep sea.
Texas Piombo(Texas lead): From greige to deep dark brown with reduced saturation.
Texas Viola (Texas violets): From vivid mauve to deep purple.
Texas Giallo(Texas yellow): From bright yellow to amber.
No oil care required
I think that general leather has a glossy surface from the beginning. That's because the surface of the leather is oiled and finished in the final process. However, the oil on the surface volatilizes over time, loses its luster, and becomes crunchy. That is why regular oil care is essential.
Elba mats, on the other hand, have a matte look at first, as the name suggests. This is because a patented method of adding 1.5 to 2 times the normal amount of oil (about 20% of the hide) without applying oil to the surface, the oil penetrates into the fiber and the leather does not dry. The more oil you use, the more the oil contained inside will seep out of the pores and coat the epidermis, giving it a gloss. The waterproof effect also increases.
If you add the existing oil for leather, the pores will be clogged and you will have difficulty breathing, which will lead to the leather aging faster. Therefore, Elbamat does not require oil care. 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.
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.
Due to the time and labor involved, few manufacturers currently produce Vachetta leather. Among the great leather nations, Elbamat is a rare presence that combines the original taste of leather with the ease of handling.
About Natural Mark
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.
・ Scratch: Original skin scars, scratches and spots.
-Uneven color: The fiber density and thickness are different. Occurs depending on lots and parts.
Blood line: A streak pattern in which traces of blood vessels immediately below become dark.
・ Tiger: Streaky stripes at places where wrinkles tend to come close, such as near the neck
Normally, these are often hidden by embossing or pigments, but in that case the original texture of the leather is impaired.
Finishes that make use of the base material like Elbamat may have a natural mark, but it can be said that it is a proof of high quality natural leather.
We hope that you understand it as a unique personality.
(Scratch / color unevenness / blood line / wrinkle)
About white powder
Elbamat is a very oily leather, so the oil component oozing out of 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 Elbamat. Thank you for your understanding.
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.
