Material

Geology Goatskin Leather
The earthy surface of this leather resembles tiny mountain ranges and river valleys as seen from high up in the atmosphere. These miniature landscapes are created by shrinking the leather. As part of the tanning process the leather grain is tightened and shrunken until the distinctive textured surface is created. The naturally shrunken skin becomes smaller, giving the craftsmen less material to work with but more importantly the leather still retains its softness. Since shrunken leather is more dense, it is more durable. Irregular surfaces textures and colors within each skin are the sign of naturally shrunken leather. We consider these natural variations while making each piece, imparting its unique character. Made in Japan.

Pressed Cotton
This fabric is made with the same machines that were used to make tent fabric. The base color of the white threads will become more apparent and it will soften with use. To keep the natural feeling of the material we did not waterproof coat the surface. There is a light water resistant treatment. Cotton is a natural material so slubs and irregularity in the fibers are part of its character. It is possible for wrinkles to appear as well.

Care

Leather
With use the shine will mellow and surface scratches picked up along the way will get worked in. The color will also deepen. Leather may fade with use and colors may bleed, especially when wet. If your item gets wet gently blot it with a soft dry cloth to prevent staining and rippling. Shade dry. If the surface appears dry, please use a mild cream over the entire leather surface(such as clear Delicate Shoe Cream)to replenish the moisture. Test cream in an inconspicuous place first. Be sure to use only clear cream as any color will rub off. We use a toothbrush to apply cream in order to get it evenly into the nooks and crannies. Oily leather creams, such as mink oil, will leave a stain so we do not recommend using them. Please be aware that applying care cream will darken the leather. Be sure to apply an even coat of care cream to the entire surface, not just in one area, to avoid staining. Do not leave the product in direct sunlight or under strong lights for long periods as it may cause discoloration or fading.

Pressed Cotton
If your wallet gets wet, pat dry with a soft cloth to absorb any liquid. With strong rubbing the color may come off leaving light spots. Please shade dry in a well ventilated area. If placed near air conditioners or heaters the item may warp.

Make it last
We’re at a turning point where we can't just keep throwing everything away. Things that last a long time, and look good doing it, mean a less disposable daily life.

Learning from Japan
The craftspeople, suppliers, and small workshops found in Japan make things not to be found anywhere else. We are fortunate to work with family businesses that are so focused on their craft. Don’t put Postalco items on a shelf or in a drawer. Their beauty is revealed through daily use. They will help you feel good at home and be ready in a meeting.
