<Present>

Animals which freely Run around the Hills and Mountains.
However, due to the decrease in people, it changed greatly owing to the collapse of forest ecosystem balance.
It devoured the mountain and came to appear near the village.
While Japanese hunters spent their time hunting, eating, lovingly treating history while carefully living their lives, modern depopulation and aging are trying to turn the lights of that culture off.
The meat of wild deer and wild boar have been reconsidered in recent years, so that we can eat cherishly.
However, all the leather was thrown away.
Because the number of people who know the value has decreased, leather has not been used for many year because no industrial value is availables.
"ORIGIN" revived its historical meaning and value. A brand is to touch the world's people with the long history of Japanese culture. Leather as the origin of Japanese history.
Nakai, the creator of this product, says.
"Wild Leather is not beautiful.
Such a word flies over the world.
There are many scratches and many holes.
We humans have lived and carved history, all the living proofs are engraved on their skin.
Also Shika Deer and Wild Boars.
Their skin which carved the history of Japan is also shaded and has a pattern, all the way they live is engraved.
There is no such thing as the beautiful testimony that human beings and animals lived hard.
Dialogue with the hunter, repeatedly  trial and error, not hurting the skin as much as possible, thanking the end of life, hands together, and deeply thanking the forest.
