Hitoe® Fold Aria - Foschia

Sale price$214.00 USD

Toward perfection and functional beauty

Perfection is the state in which no further cuts can be made.
These are the words of Saint-Exupéry, the author of "The Prince of Stars".

The Hitoe® structure (design registered ), which prevents stacking of stored items, a minimalist design with no metal fittings and smooth operation using a patented inner hook, and a slipless specification (patent pending ) that prevents cards from falling out of the bag.

The Hitoe® Fold Aria is the ultimate in the Hitoe® Fold series, with the ultimate in minimalism in both design and operability.

Sophisticated design and exquisite workmanship have been sublimated into a breathtakingly perfect functional beauty.

ミニマルなデザイン - HITOE FOLD ARIA

Aria" is as light as air.

Aria " means "air" in Italian.
It is a wallet so light and thin that you may forget it exists, just like air.

Challenge to thinness

The Hitoe® structure (design registered), which does not stack cards and coins, achieves thinness.
The thickest part when stored is 12mm
(when 6 cards, 10 banknotes, and 10 100 yen coins are stored)
・Palm size: 89mm x 91mm
・Light as air: approx. 30g
Up to 15 banknotes, 20 coins, and 6 cards can be stored. Even with ample storage, it remains thin.

Top quality Muso tailoring

All parts are made of two thin pieces of leather pasted together to form a single piece. This technique is said to be the most luxurious in leather products, and it is both strong and thin at the same time. It takes a wealth of experience and skilled craftsmanship to create a product that looks like a single piece of leather, without lifting or deflection even when folded.

In pursuit of simplicity, the engraving is hidden under the card

Thin detailing

The edges are stitched together on the outside, with the leather stacked on top of each other. This is for the sake of "thinness. If the leather is folded over and rolled inside, the size can be reduced, but the leather overlaps and becomes thicker.
This detail is true to the ideal of a thin wallet.

端部比較 - HITOE FOLD ARIA

While pursuing thinness, the leather is still thick enough to provide the leather-like texture of tension and firmness that is so important.

Hardware-free inner hook

A new concept of using the cards to be stored as a clasp.

We invented a patented inner hook that hangs from the card instead of the outside of the wallet.
The smart leather hook is invisible from the front while the wallet remains thin.
This idea made possible the minimalist design of the small, thin Hitoe® Fold Aria wallet with no hardware.

Inner hook to hang on the card integrated with the bill holder

It not only serves as a clasp, but also prevents cards from falling out when carried.

カードの落下防止 - HITOE FOLD ARIA
It is tucked inside to prevent cards from falling out unexpectedly

Clasped by leather. That's all there is to it.

Just clasp it with leather for a flat appearance. No metal fittings, flaps, or other unnecessary items stick out, so it remains thin and won't get caught in your pocket.
The design prevents the inner hook from coming off when the front and back are reversed. Therefore, there is no need to worry about dropping coins by mistakenly opening the top and bottom sides.

Composed only of leather without any hardware

Minimalist and smooth operability

The Fold can be easily opened and closed by simply bending it in the " ku" shape, which is where the name "Fold" comes from. With this one action, you can smoothly insert and remove money and cards while the wallet is in portrait orientation.

(For right-handed users, the trick is to bend the lower part of the wallet with the left hand in a "ku-shape" and not touch the inner hook.

Do not fold banknotes.

Just insert bills without folding them. They are highly visible and easy to remove. Since it does not get bent into folds or trifolds, it can be smoothly inserted into vending machines and self-checkout machines.
The bill holder is designed to be continuous with the inner hook. The curve of the hook serves as a guide, allowing smooth insertion and removal without snagging.

Smoothly inserts and removes cards without touching the bill holder

Prevents cards from falling out

When the wallet is closed, the inner hook hangs on the card so it will not fall out. Even when the wallet is open, the slip-less design (patent pending ) prevents cards from falling out.
The feeling of slipping a card in and out of the wallet is of high quality and comfortable.

Effect of Slipless Specification (Patent Pending)

Temporary cards are held in the bill holder. There is no problem with opening and closing the wallet.

開き方 - HITOE FOLD ARIA
Occasional cards can be held in the bill holder.

Smooth, non-overflowing coin pocket

The coin pocket is shallow and has no fasteners, hooks, or other metal fittings, so you can quickly remove the coins you need without removing them.
When storing coins, the coin pocket lid serves as a guide for smooth storage.
When the wallet is closed, coins will not overflow. Even when the wallet is open, the coin pocket lid prevents overflow.
There is room for 999 yen (15 coins).

Coin pocket that does not overflow

Design in accordance with the laws of nature

Why is the Golden Ratio so beautiful?
The Golden Ratio 1:1.62 is the ratio of the length and width of a rectangle consisting of a square with the Fibonacci sequence as one of its sides repeated in a spiral shape. (Figure below)
In fact, the Fibonacci sequence is hidden everywhere in nature. Tree branches, the number of petals, sunflower seeds, seashells, typhoons, spiral galaxies. It can also be found in art, such as the Pyramids, the Parthenon, and the 36 Views of Mount Fuji, where beauty is at its finest.
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.

Proportions based on the spiral of the Fibonacci sequence

Beautiful details

The precise and delicate stitching, the polished leather edges that reveal the overlapping layers of leather, and the fine lines placed around the edges with a hot iron.
Every detail of the Hitoe® Fold Aria, a small, thin wallet, is beautiful.

端部処理 - HITOE FOLD ARIA
Beautiful edge treatment

Long and beautiful use

Generally, most problems with wallets are caused by hardware or sewing. However, the small, thin Hitoe® Fold wallet uses no hardware at all and only four stitches.
In addition, the easily damaged corners are covered with layers of outer and inner leather to increase durability. The seam allowance is as small as possible, so the design does not easily lose its shape even in a trouser pocket.

角の補強 - HITOE FOLD ARIA
The corners are layered with leather for durability.

Foggy look

Foschia means fog in Italian. Vegetable tanned oil leather is treated with white wax to give it a misty look. The more you use it, the more transparent it becomes.

使い易さ、サイズ、質感、全てが完璧です。
ズボンのバックポケットに1週間くらい入れてみましたが、均一に薄い状態で形が馴染んでいます。懸念があるとすれば、開閉時に曲がる部分がどう劣化していくか?くらいです。(ダメになってもまたHitoeシリーズを購入すると思いますが)

この度は、数ある商品の中からお買い求めくださり誠にありがとうございます。
大変嬉しいお言葉をいだだき、スタッフ一同大変嬉しく励みになります。
ご使用に伴い色艶が増し、手触りも変化いたします。お客様と共にする時間の中、唯一無二の佇まいになっていく過程もお楽しみいただけますと幸いに存じます。
今後とも宜しくお願い申し上げます。

傷がつきやすい以外はとても良い

価格に目をつむればとても良い
購入後、手入れサイトにあった防水スプレーを使用。まだ水に濡らしたことがないため効果は分からないが長く綺麗に使いたいならするべきだと思う。

ただタイトルにもある通り、傷がつきやすく、光が当たって目立ちやすい。神経質な人は厳しいかもしれない。

この度は、数ある商品の中からお買い求めくださり誠にありがとうございます。
早速防水スプレーもしてくださり、大切にご愛用いただいているご様子に、スタッフ一同大変嬉しく存じます。
Foschiaはホワイトワックス加工を施しており、新品の状態では朝もやのような表情が特徴です。この朝もやのようなワックスは使うほどに擦れて浸透し、次第に色濃く、透明感のある表情があらわれてまいります。同時に傷や汚れなども馴染んでまいります。またFoschiaの革は、ホワイトワックスが擦れる過程が傷のように見えるとのお声をいただくこともあり、革の特徴のご案内方法は私共の課題でもあり、今後一層工夫してまいる所存です。貴重なご感想をお寄せくださいましたこと、重ねてお礼申し上げます。
時間の流れと共に変わる佇まいも、お楽しみ頂けますと幸いです。
今後とも何卒よろしくお願い申し上げます。

質感がいい

某aの薄い財布から乗り換え。皮がしっかりしていて質感が良い。開閉動作は慣れが必要なのと、折れ曲がる部分の皮が痛みそうなのが気になります。カード入れはもう少し入るかと思ったが記載通りの枚数でキツキツ。とはいえ、見た目も皮の模様もかっこよく、全体的に満足しています。どのくらい長く使えるか楽しみです。

この度は、数ある商品の中からお買い求めくださり誠にありがとうございます。
お気に召していただき、スタッフ一同大変嬉しく励みになります。
カード収納部は革の伸びを想定して設計しておりますため、ご購入当初はきつくお感じになるかと存じます。次第に馴染んでまいりますので、ご理解賜れますと幸いに存じます。

使用10日の所感としては、とても良い

初代の札押さえなしver.をかつて使っていました。
お札が動いたりと多少の不満?があったのですが今回改めて薄い財布に戻ってきたところ不満は解消されていました。
無双仕上げも高級感があります。

カードが多少取り出しづらく感じる点

思ったよりグイッと曲げる感じになる点

が少し気になりますが、ポケットやカバンへの収まりの良さはとても良いです。

エイジングでどうなるのか楽しみです。

このたびは、リピートでご購入くださり誠にありがとうございます。
初代の頃より応援くださり、またこのようにご縁をいただけましたこと、スタッフ一同大変嬉しく励みになります。
いただいたご感想は社内で周知をし、今後の商品開発の参考にさせていただきます。

手にして嬉しい質感と使用感

事前のどこでもショールーム利用で使用感に関しては体験済み、新品の商品は本購入で初めて手にしました。ワックスで表面は白っぽく皮も硬めですが、質感はとても良く細部まで丁寧に作られていて好印象でした。これからの経年変化も楽しみにしつつ、長く付き合っていきたいと思っています。

この度は、どこでもショールームのご利用、ならびにAriaをお買い求めくださり誠にありがとうございます。質感、ご使用感ともにお気に召していただき、スタッフ一同大変励みになります。
Foschiaの革が馴染むほどに色艶は増してまいります。
