Yuta Morita, Japan
The original watch strap was made of metals, and I changed it to watch strap from 47Ronin. Although I didn't change the watch itself, I feel like I am wearing a completely different watch. I am a huge Japan fan - I feel like the spirit of bushido and samurai was equipped in my watch with a new watch strap..
Akane Suzuki, Japan
It is a surprise to see the combination of leather and Kimono. They are such beautiful materials on its own, and the combined effect is remarkable. It is such a unique piece of watch strap with customisation and personalisation. Truely one of its kind I have ever seen.
Khanh Nguyen, Vietnam
The watch strap is customised to the size of my watch and my wrist. It is such as an unique piece of art on my wrist that many friends asked me about it. I know very well, this is the only unique piece handcrafted with unique materials from Japan. I feel special and lucky having it.
A sunset industry: beautiful yet fast disappearing
One of the aspects of Japan we admire is the craftsman’s spirit that has been passed down for generations and well preserved until today. The craftsman’s philosophy in providing the best quality for the customers, pursuing of perfection, and continuously polishing one’s skill is so respected and admired. However, due to decrease in domestic demand and absence of a younger generation taking up the trade, traditional crafts are fast disappearing. We decided that we could do something about it.
