Luxury genuine shell cordovan handcrafted zipped organiser lined in smooth Japanese leather inspired by vintage pieces from our collection.
The Henro Zipped Organiser is named after the Shikoku Pilgrimage, a pilgrimage to 88 temples associated with the Buddhist saint Kukai. The Henro is Japan’s most popular pilgrimage.
Pilgrims travel around Shikoku island, a 1400 kilometre trip, that takes up to to sixty days to complete. Every pilgrim carries a basic kit comprising essential daily items, which inspired us to design a zipped organiser that would be compact but large enough to carry items that we consider really useful on a daily basis.
Henro is a hybrid design, a 4 loop pen case that also includes space for a B6 slim size notebook or a smartphone, passport, other documents and card slots. The depth (3 cm) was calculated to accommodate the contents it was designed for without bulging.
Includes 4 pen loops sized for fountain pens, 3 inside pockets, 1 outer card pocket (for public transport cards for example), zip closure to keep the contents secure.
Finest Japanese shell cordovan that will age beautifully and feels fantastic in use. The natural version will darken progressively with repeated exposure to light. Lined in full grain vegetable-tanned Tochigi leather, top of the range YKK Excella zipper.
Handmade in Japan by skilled craftsmen.
This zipped organiser is designed to be practical and a joy to use for many years, whether you use it for work, travel or journaling.
