A custom-made sofa begins with the making of leather. Unlike furniture made of materials whose distribution is unknown, it can speak to its guests in the same way as wine.

HIDA LEATHER®(ヒダレザー)は、2017年、大切な地域資源である飛騨牛を、地場産業である家具づくりで活用するために開発した皮革ブランドです。様々な関係機関との信頼のもとにブランドが存在しています。

HIDA LEATHER® is a leather brand self-developed in 2017 to utilize our important local resource, Hida beef, in furniture making, a local industry. The brand exists on the basis of trust with various related institutions.



When I saw vintage furniture, I saw leather that had aged as beautifully as the wood. If I were to make leather from scratch, I would like to make leather like this. I wanted to make a leather that would last a lifetime and that could tell the story of its roots.




The leather is tanned with vegetable tannin to match the aging of the wood products, and natural marks such as grains are left as they are, giving the leather a natural look. The leather is not painted with pigments, which would deteriorate the leather, but dyed to give it a beautiful appearance over time.




In addition, in order to avoid wasting resources, we have established a system in which only the necessary amount of leather is produced from raw hides. This makes it possible to control the color, expression, and softness of leather from small quantities. On the other hand, the natural expression of the leather is not hidden by processing or painting, so if you look closely, each piece of leather is as different as wood. The reason for daring to avoid uniformity by painting is to avoid making the life of the painting the life of the product. We make effective use of Hida beef, which the producers have worked hard to raise, and insist on a finish that cannot be used without the understanding of the user.



We secure the hides produced in the manufacturing process of Hida-gyu, a brand-name Japanese beef, for use as furniture leather. The amount of leather we can produce is limited due to the limited number of Hida-gyu cattle produced each year. Most leather hides are collected and stored by specialized companies, and it takes a long time before they are ready for leather production. Hida beef, however, is processed independently due to its geographical location in the mountains, and the time required for leather production is extremely short. The freshness of the raw hides affects the durability of the hides, so the quality of the hides cannot be judged by their appearance. Also, there are only a few leathers in the world whose origin is known, which makes it a rare leather.


生物の皮を長く使うためには、腐敗しないようにする鞣(なめ)す工程が必要である。HIDA LEATHER®は開発当初から、兵庫県姫路市にあるタンナーに革の製造を一任している。この地域は戦国時代から革の鞣(なめ)しが盛んな地。現在、多くの革は短期間で製造するためクロムによる鞣しがほとんどだが、昔ながらの樹木の成分タンニンを使用してじっくりと丈夫な革を作っている。

To use a living skin for a long time, the tanning process is necessary to prevent it from rotting, and HIDA LEATHER® has entrusted the production of leather to the tanner. The tanning of leather has been popular in the Takagi area of Hanada since the Warring States Period. Today, most leather is tanned using chrome metal for short-term production, but tannin, an ingredient of trees, is used to make leather slowly and sturdily as in the past.



In order to make the leather as natural and moist as possible, we do not apply pigmented coatings, but only dye the leather. We recommend regular maintenance of the leather to avoid color migration.



We recommend wiping down the leather to remove dust, and cleaning and conditioning the leather periodically. The more time and effort you put into it, the more beautiful it becomes. Please be careful not to use alcohol or other chemicals to remove bacteria, as they can deplete the oil content of the leather and cause it to deteriorate. We have a business alliance with Unitas Far East, a worldwide leather maintenance company. For more information about maintenance supplies or to request maintenance, please email us.
