Modern Folk; Visvim’s New Line
A few months ago, Visvim founder Hiroki Nakamura previewed an upcoming sub-line of Visvim titled the Folk series. In recent memory, Nakamura has shed much light through interviews on his design ethos as well as his concept behind this Folk collection. Although not based entirely based around ecological factors, the Folk collection will utilize vegetable tanned leathers which offer uncompromised breathability and comfort unlike traditional leather materials. Also touched upon by Nakamura is the relationship of technology and environmental preservation. Although Visvim’s other sub-collection G-Line seemed to be deviating from the path which once made Visvim so popular, the Folk collection is much more a return to Visvim’s traditional roots.
