A needle and a line of staff spirit: half century hand-made leather workshop Tsuchiya


Text / Polysh special writer Sophia Ch.


In the fast-paced world, there are always people who cherish the taste of slowness. In addition to the pace and attitude, slow work is also a firm and earnest life. Everyone will only experience one birth, one death, one twenty-year-old, one fifty-day life recognition; no re-start, no retreat. What kind of experience to give to yourself is a past and process that cannot be recovered later. This is one of the ideas of the Tsuchiya Museum.












Fifty years ago, from the beginning of the day, the leather goods were the mainstay, and the Tsuchiya Museum was quietly operating for half a century. There are 20 staff members in the workshop of Adachi, Tokyo, which inherits the philosophy and professional skills of the half century. Through the hands of each employee who have been in the workshop for a long time, the real leather products are delivered directly to the front. The Japanese are serious about R&D technology and production. I believe that everyone is familiar with it, that is, with this sincerity and sincerity, the needle and the line are the brainchild. The "Our sincerity in every stitch and life Hong Kong special workshop and concept store" held at the animation base in Wanchai, Hong Kong a few days ago, the second generation of the population complained of the story, loyalty and mission of the Tsuchiya Museum. Mr. Kanazawa, who has worked at Tsuchiya Museum for fifteen years, also made a special trip to Japan to demonstrate the production of randoseru.






















Randoseru (ランドセル), the backpack ransel from the Dutch language, transplanted the Dutch technology and improved it, and gradually evolved into the current fine production. The Japanese elementary school students' backpacks, which are the mainstay of the Tsuchiya Museum, allow school-age children to complete the school year from Primary One to Primary Six. They must be sturdy, durable and comfortable. Pupils are the future social dynamics, they must give them a good partner without burden, this is the production policy passed down by randoseru.
















In addition to randoseru, Tsuchiya Museum also produces adult leather, from backpacks and fortification bags to small handbags or wallets and pencil cases. Among them, Tone Oilnume – Soft Backpack is a style that can be used for decades. Urbano – Urban Briefcase is also an option for office workers.






In recent years, I have traveled to Taiwan and Hong Kong, but the products are insisted on being delivered directly by the Japanese workshop. No matter where they are, they insist on the same level of quality. Tsuchiya 鞄 鞄 务 务 务 土 土 土 土 土 土 土 土 土 土 土 土 土 土 土 土 土 土 土 土 土 土 土 土 土 土 土 土 土 土 土 土 土 土
