Crafted for Lexus: Brooklyn Museum leather goods
Celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, Tokyo-based Brooklyn Museum crafts some of the finest luxury leather goods to come out of Japan. Company president Masahiko Kusagaya reveals that the family-run business was founded with a clear purpose: “We only make things we are passionate about – products we can put our heart into.”
Three such designer products are those produced for the Crafted for Lexus collection – a travel case, a multi-wallet and a money clip.
All items are fabricated from high-quality Japanese yamato cowhide, which is renowned for its supple feel and fine texture. The soft, luxurious nature of the leather also allows the tanning dyes to fully penetrate the material, which helps to reduce the visual severity of any scuffs. Additionally, each product can be personalised with stitching of a contrasting or complementary colour.
The exclusivity of the Crafted for Lexus travel case is appreciated in the subtle suggestion of the spindle grille motif in the cardholder section (see above), while further features include a pen loop and sections to hold your passport, tickets and other items.
Products available: travel case (navy or yellow), multi-wallet (navy, brown, yellow, orange or aqua), money clip (navy, yellow, orange or aqua)
