Hender Scheme celebrates the first anniversary of its second flagship, the Sukima Kappabashi, with the release of three exclusive items. Known for its “effect_lab,” a special machine for customizing leather goods with special stamps, the Tokyo outpost location will release special takes on the Tortoise sandal, Multi Helmet Bag and a new Kinchaku bag.
The Tortoise footwear option take on the shape of a Birkenstock sandal but are elevated with a chunky rounded ripple sole and see patent and natural leather all in a rich vegetable-tanned color. Vegetable tanned leather continues onto the remaining pieces as seen in the Multi Helmet Bag; the bag features a mixed construction of waxed canvas, nylon and handles made in the signature Hender Scheme leather. The Kinchaku bag makes a return but switches its customary suede material with vegetable tanned leather.
Set for a June 29 release, each item will retail in the ¥36,000 JPY price point (approximately $335 USD) and will be available exclusively at the Sukima Kappabashi store and online.
