Crafted for Lexus: Roberu Leather Travel Bag

Crafted for Lexus: Roberu leather travel bag

This stylish leather travel bag is the third product from Roberu to join the Crafted for Lexus collection. Alongside this, the Japanese leather specialist also offers a bow tie and a pen case.

With the theme ‘handmade in Japan’ at its core, Roberu started out in 2009 when Shinji Iwamoto (below) began to teach himself leather-working. The brand is inspired by a vision of spreading made-in-Japan leather crafts around the world.

“I want our products to be timeless rather than timely”

 “I want our products to be timeless rather than timely,” explains Mr.Iwamoto, who believes in “getting back to the basics.”

Taking on a new challenge for Crafted for Lexus, Mr. Iwamoto paired Italian leather with hemp canvas to create a unique contrast of textures. 

The reverse side of the leather is treated with beeswax, which gives a unique matte feel. The hemp is heat-treated with wax, making it water resistant.
