Yukizna Exhibition: The World of Mosaic Leather

7:00am – 2:00am
Free

Check out some eye-catchingly beautiful and eye-wateringly expensive high-end leather goods at Daikanyama‘s T-Site in May and early June.

Yukizna’s distinctive designs are hand-crafted from tiny hexagons of hand-dyed leather, woven together in designs that merge traditional Japanese sensibility with a very modern approach to texture and luxury. The company hails from Minami Sanriku in Miyagi Prefecture, and started up after the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami in 2011. It’s no coincidence: the Yukizna name comes from yui, meaning “mutual assistance” and kizna, meaning “linkage”, and is a nod to the major rebuilding and regeneration in the region.

Check out the goods at Daikanyama T-Site/Tsutaya Books between 7am and 2am daily. Entry is free, and if you feel like doing a bit more than looking, there’s also a pop-up shop.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
