With its streets lined with stylish cafes and French restaurants, lending it an old-world charm, Tanukikoji 8-chome has always been an area geared towards young patrons. In contrast to the bustling activity昔の趣を残しつつも、スタイリッシュなカフェやフレンチレストランなどが立ち並び、若者を中心に注目を集めている狸小路8丁目。中心部の賑やかさとは対照的に、ゆったりとした時間の流れが心地良い

この狸小路8丁目に「日下公司」の工房が移転して約3年。古い家屋を改装したという工房は、昔からその場所にあったかのように、8丁目界隈の雰囲気にしっかりと溶け込んでいる。

日下公司の革製品は、素材選びから縫製、アフターケアまで完璧なまでのこだわりのもとで製作されている。

ブッテーロ・ミネルバボックスなどを初めとする上質な革は、使い込む程に持主の体に馴染んでいき、自分だけのアイテムを育てる楽しみを与えてくれる。長く使ってもらえる物を作りたいという日下氏の想いが、至る所に込められた製品達。手に取らずとも分かる丁寧な作りや質の良さは、全てが手作業だからこそ生み出される特徴なのだろう。

星や栗をイメージしたハンドバッグ「スター」「ショ・レ・マロン」、日下氏が工房設立時より作り続けている「ミュージックケース」(写真)は、札幌スタイル認証製品として、そのプロモーションの幅をさらに広げている。

注文については基本的にセミオーダー形式となっており、使用する革の種類や色・ステッチの色等を相談した後、数ヶ月~1年以上での納品となる。在庫のある商品については通信販売での購入も可能。

日下公司の革製品は、時を重ねる度に、その変化を楽しみながら育てていきたいと感じさせる物ばかり。一生大切にできる革製品を探すのであれば、ぜひ日下公司の工房を尋ねてみてほしい。探していた以上の物が、きっと見つかるはずだ。

in the city centre, this is a place where time seems to slow down and life winds down to a soothing pace.

It is on this street that the workshop ‘Kusaka Koushi’ has been established for 3 years. Despite renovating the rundown venue it inherited, the shop has retained the traditional, rustic allure of the neighbourhood, blending right in and giving the feel that it’s been here forever.

Kusaka Koushi’s leather goods are meticulously, exquisitely manufactured, starting from the process of hand-picking the leather material which is then sewn together by hand, right up to the after care of its products.

By using fine-quality leather such as Buttero leather (hand-crafted leather) or Minerva Box leather, products are designed such that the longer you use them, the more they adapt to the owner’s body, ensuring that the items remain truly personal ones which require the owner’s care and attention. As the owner Kusaka has always wanted to create products that would be long-lasting for the consumer, this customer-orientedness is always present in the attention to detail found in all the products. Even without personally picking the product up, the conscientious workmanship used and the good quality of the product is apparent at a glance, imbuing it with a uniqueness that comes only from work that is fully handmade.

Recently, their products have also been endorsed by the Sapporo Style Shop for authentically representing the Sapporo design aesthetic, further helping their recognition as a label. These range from the handbags ‘Star’ and ‘Chaud Les Marrons’, which draw on the images of stars and Japanese chestnuts for their designs, to the classic ‘Music Case’ (photo), which has been a Kusaka creation since the brand was first established.

Orders can be partly customised to your tastes, such as the type and colour of leather used, as well as the colour of the stitching, with the final product being delivered within a few months to a year. Products in stock at the shop, made ready for sale, can also be purchased via mail-order.

Made to withstand the pressures of time, Kusaka Koushi’s leather goods will almost be like trusty companions you can have by your side as you tackle the dynamic, exciting changes that life brings. If you’re looking for a leather bag that can last for a lifetime, especially through life’s most important moments, head on down to Kusaka Koushi. You’ll be sure to find something.
