.URUKUST is both a design studio and a workshop for leathercraft products managed by Yasue Tsuchihira. All .URUKUST products are designed and produced in her own studio.
Based on the belief, "A good design is born from the hands, rather than from sketches," dozens of prototypes are created, then finally made into a complete design.
Ultimately, we believe that the experience of making something by hand can change your perspective, help you discover what you like, and moreover, discover yourself.
We would like to shed light on handicrafts once again in the modern world, where quick purchasing is the norm.
