Started by Tokyo-based brothers Gen and Dai Takahashi, i ro se is a brand that's inspired by their childhood pastime of fashioning toys out of random items from around the house. A closer look will show a playfulness to the products, with a variety of items resembling corrugated cardboard.
The star range from i ro se is called "SEAMLESS", which is expertly crafted from a single sheet of leather, folded up organically just like origami. The resulting items, which feature bags, document cases and an assortment of small leather goods, are simple yet make a distinct Japanese statement that complements daily use.
Colours are kept to a minimum here, with majority of the product offerings featuring a gorgeous natural leather shade, while some items are in colours like green, mint, navy and black.
