All of our bags and accessories are designed and carefully made in our Greenpoint Studio in New York.  The vegetable tanned leather comes from Italian tanneries, our rayon lacing comes from Japanese artisans and vintage lacing from the US. We aim to combine the techniques of making samurai armor, wood crafts, and bamboo baskets with unique and modern design to create handbags and accessories using new technologies and materials.

 
I hope the bags and accessories I make become part of people’s daily lives, interwoven with their memories and passing on from one generation to the next. Most importantly I strive to create timeless designs that can outlast seasonal trends.

  Customer Service and More    HATORI provides repair, cleaning, and cord replacement.    If you wish, we can reconstruct previously purchased bags to feature the halves of the leather segments that were not exposed, allowing bag owners to enjoy seeing the leather age once again. Customers will also have the option of changing the color of the cord.    HATORI hopes its bags can be used and reused over generations as new life is imbued into them.
