Manufacturing inherited for 120 years in Tokyo

YAMATOU has manufactured goods in Tokyo since it was founded in 1899. The work of designing, selecting materials, sewing, processing, and sales are all done by YAMATOU. We continue to create products that suit each age, believing that we can deliver high-quality products to customers at a reasonable price by handling the entire process on our own. We have opened 2 stores, “Walleteria YAMATOU” in Ningyocho and Kagurazaka to directly convey the feelings and commitment of the artisans to our customers. We sell the original series of YAMATOU. Workshops are held several times a month at Walleteria YAMATOU. You can experience our craftsmanship while seeing the skills that have been passed on for centuries and the commitment YAMATOU treasures.

We are proud that our artisans and staff do not spare any effort nor work

We desire our customers to use it with pride. The artisans and staff at YAMATOU do not spare any effort nor work.  
We continue to create using our techniques using authentic materials. There are countless processes involved in making small leather accessories. Each process requires techniques and tension.
We choose a tool and even adjust the amount of glue depending on the weather. The product is complete after creating all the parts. Then follows the many inspections.
It is the pleasure and pride of the artisans to uphold that commitment and carefully create each product. The completed product then receives support in the market. This is the pride of YAMATOU.
Because we want to cherish this connection of “having pride,” YAMATOU has continued to make small leather accessories such as leather wallets in Japan at the company factory and with trusted and skilled partners. We would like to continue to be thankful for these relationships with pride and faithfully create products to become a company people would be thankful.
