Leather Card Case by Roberu

By Roberu 

This Leather Card Case (¥5,880Prices are approximate only and subject to change.
White Rabbit Express service fee and other costs not included.
) is handmade in Yokohama by cult brand Leather Factory Roberu; a brand that pairs traditional Japanese craft techniques with elegant design. Difficult to find outside of Japan, White Rabbit Express is now offering the purchase of Roberu goods internationally.

The Card Case is handmade with two types of soft leather, one of which has been repeatedly oiled to create a richly colored hue. It’s a great way to store business cards, with four interior pockets and a space on the back for easy access to your own cards. In Japan the exchange of meishi (business cards) is an almost ritualized part of all meetings, and your card case says a lot about you.

The Roberu Card Case shows you appreciate good old craftsmanship and materials. Of course, it says the same thing about you even if you’re using it as a slim, simple leather wallet, too. Handy for those who hate carrying around large wallets packed with receipts and coins.

Specifications:
Size: Suitable for storing credit cards and business cards.
Materials: Leather with metal fittings
Color: Brown, Navy, Bordeaux, Gray

About Leather Factory Roberu:
Leather Factory Roberu uses only the highest quality leather which is then worked by hand at a workshop in Yokohama to produce their pouches, straps, belts, wallets, bags and shoes. Their goal is to manufacture objects that connect people to natural, organic materials; the unevenness of coloring and scratches on the surface of the leather serve as proof that it came from a living thing, they say.

You are meant to experience the process of making through Roberu products and “increase the texture” of the leather as you use it over months, years, or even decades. Remember that everything which leaves the Roberu workshop is handmade and sewn together with durable thread, ensuring that each item will be around long enough to soften and weather. Japan is known for its high-quality leather accessories and expert craftsmen. Roberu embodies this reputation.
