The Cornelian Taurus by Daisuke Iwanaga brand is all about strong individual pieces built from originality. Anchored in traditional Japanese methods and techniques while fully expressing the designer’s sensibilities and background, all products are handmade following intricate processes with durable construction. Great skill and attention to detail result in unique, excellent leather goods. Made of a strong black canvas with horse leather detailing, this is of course not your average backpack. The level of craft put into this new release is incredible, with great work on the arm straps together with beautiful brass on the adjuster rings, two-way zippers, press buttons and pullers. Finally the defining point of it all is a fishtail element which can be worn closed or hanging. Priced at €650 EUR (approximately $870 USD), the Cornelian Taurus by Daisuke Iwanaga Backpack is now available through Por Vocacao.
