Thin wallet

A " wallet" is a bifold wallet without a coin pocket.
The general characteristic of a wallet is that it is thin because it does not hold coins.
Among such wallets, the Hitoe® Quartet is a remarkably thin wallet.

ミニマルなデザイン - Hitoe Fold Liscio

Just 9mm thin with 8 cards.

The four card pockets do not overlap each other in the "Hitoe® (single) structure," making it overwhelmingly thin.
The
compact size of 118 x 92mm
and surprising ly

light weight (approx. 39g)
allow each card pocket to hold 1~2 cards, for a total of 4~8 cards.



Even with ample storage space, the card holder is overwhelmingly thin.

Pursuit of thinness

The edges are not "rolled in" but have a "seam allowance. This is in pursuit of thinness. Wrapping up the leather makes the size smaller, but the overlap of the leather increases, making it thicker.
This is a detail that is faithful to the ideal we are aiming for.

Making the most of materials

The design of the
Hitoe® Quartet is based on the characteristics of the leather, and the
full-length card pocket is used as a core material to make the design work with thin leather.
The gap between the cards allows for flexibility in following deformation and prevents damage to the cards.

Long and beautiful use

Most problems with wallets are caused by hardware and sewing. No hardware is used at all, and only six stitches are used. Furthermore, stitches are avoided on the folded parts that are subject to friction.
Corners, which are prone to damage, are covered with layers of outer and inner leather to increase durability. The stitching allowance is as small as possible, and the design prevents the bag from losing its shape.

Beautiful details

Precise and delicate stitches, the polished surface of the leather on the dyed surface, the smooth surface of the leather floor, and the fine lines (nenpiki) drawn around the edges with a heated iron. We pursue beauty down to the smallest detail.

Designed in accordance with the laws of nature

Why is the golden ratio so beautiful?
The golden ratio 1:1.62 is the aspect ratio of a rectangle consisting of a square with the Fibonacci sequence as one side repeated in a spiral shape. (Figure below)
And the Fibonacci sequence is hidden everywhere in nature.
And the Fibonacci sequence is hidden everywhere in nature: tree branches, the number of petals, sunflower seeds, seashells, typhoons, and spiral galaxies. It can also be found in the most beautiful art forms, such as the Pyramids, the Parthenon, and the 36 Views of Mount Fuji.
It is not the golden ratio that is important. It is the Fibonacci sequence, in which the proportions from the smallest detail to the whole are deeply related to nature and the providence of life, that results in a well-balanced design that resonates with the heart.

Smooth texture

Liscio is an Italian word meaning "smooth.
The silver surface is smooth and fine, with natural unevenness in color due to the dye finish, giving it an elegant and tasteful leather-like appearance.

The leather used is vacchetta leather, which has been used in the Tuscany region of Italy since the early 9th century. The leather is tanned with vegetable tannin and soaked with oil slowly, so that you can enjoy its almost permanent moisture and gloss.

The aging process of vacchetta leather stands out among other Italian leathers, and the color and luster of the leather deepens beautifully.

Aging

CamelCamel: The color of camel hair. A light brown with yellowish tints.
ChestnutChestnut: Chestnut. A reddish brown.
Teal Teal : The color of a duck's facial hair. The blue-green color gradually darkens.
Black Black : The leather gradually turns from matte to glossy black.

Natural Mark

Animals are bound to have scratches, stains, insect bites, and other blemishes.
In ordinary leather, these are covered up with pigments and enamels.

However, this leather is dyed to preserve the original texture and feel of the leather. Therefore, the following "living proofs (natural marks)" are often engraved on the leather.

These are the unique characteristics of natural materials and are not defects. However, each person has his or her own taste in the appearance. If you wish, we can replace them. If you wish to exchange the item, please check the exchange section of " Warranty, Repair, Cancellation, and Returns" before proceeding.

Scratches

The cows that are the source of this leather are raised on pasture so that they grow up in a healthy and stress-free environment. Therefore, there are many small scars and insect bites from bumps and fights. These scars are "rose scars. The better the leather grows in a natural environment, the better the quality of the leather, but the more rose scars there will be.

They are scattered throughout the leather and only small parts can be removed if they are avoided. Therefore, they are often found on large parts.

This is a unique expression of natural leather that can never be seen in man-made materials.

Bloodstain

The most common sign that a leather is natural and not man-made is the "blood streak", a pattern unique to natural leather.

These are the traces of blood vessels under the skin. Some are faintly visible on the silver surface, some remain as light wrinkles, and some are clearly visible on the floor.

Tigers.

A long stripe pattern created when the complex shape of an animal is flattened into leather. It is called "tiger" because it looks like the stripes of a tiger.

Tigers are especially common around the neck, and since this leather is shoulder, tigers are frequently seen. The area around the spine, where there are many tigers, has a high fiber density and the leather is of good quality. Flat, wrinkle-free leather is not necessarily better quality.

In Italian leather, tigers are a very popular characteristic that enriches the look of the leather.

Pinholes

Pores and hair follicles remain in the leather and are called "pinholes.
The leather is often seen as a natural expression, especially when the leather is only dyed and has little surface treatment, as in this case.
