History

7 million yen in support for Made in Kyoto

I was born and raised in Yoshida, Sakyo-ku, Kyoto.

Since my ancestors and relatives were painters, potters, and calligraphers, I became familiar with the crafts and art of Kyoto at an early age.

After graduating from university, I worked in the development of cultural facilities such as museums, and during my 25 years there, I was in charge of many facilities in Japan and abroad, and was able to interact with many makers, craftsmen, and artists.

During my 25 years there, I was in charge of many facilities both in Japan and abroad and had the opportunity to interact with many makers, craftsmen and artists.

In 2016, I opened my own shop, Time-do, in Karasuma, Kyoto, on a street overlooking the Kyoto Imperial Palace, as a place to communicate the value of craftsmanship.

In the spring of 2020, I launched .

In the midst of the Corona disaster, I took on the challenge of crowdfunding and was able to raise over 7 million yen in support.

Characteristic

Patented X-shaped structure that achieves "almost everything".

■SMART MOVE!" is an all-in-one genuine leather case.

When I go out for a while or pick up my child from the station, I was always too lazy to take everything with me: car key, house key, driver's license, wallet, and smartphone.

Sometimes, I would leave the house without any of them.

I always wondered if it would be possible to put them all in one compact place.

I always wondered if there was a way to put them all together in one compact place.

I looked everywhere for a good one, but I couldn't find one.

I had to make it myself.

SMART MOVE! is more than just a wallet and a key case in one, it is an ultra-compact bag that can hold almost everything you need for a trip.

Especially for people who travel by car every day, the location of the "smart key" is very important.

Smart keys are large and obtrusive, but you don't want to damage them.

SMART MOVE! is the solution to all these problems.

Moreover, it can store two smart keys. In fact, there are many people who have two smart keys.

Recently, keys for front doors, engine starters, and remote controls for garage shutters have become similar in shape and size.

The case, which is about 10 cm square, solves such problems at once.

In the process of prototyping, we made dozens of adjustments in millimeter increments and thoroughly eliminated unnecessary elements to achieve simple and easy-to-understand functions and usability.

The most important point is the "X-shaped structure" (patented) inside the bag, which is much thinner and sleeker than imagined because the gusset width created by the X-shaped structure is efficiently used by the stored items without any gaps.

The leather is made in Himeji, the largest production area in western Japan, the sewing is done in Kyoto, and the zipper is made by YKK.

 

■Miyawaki Baisen-an collaboration

"Rakuiro URUSHI & MON-YOH" is a series of Kyoto fans that incorporate the color "Rakuiro", which reflects the scenes of Kyoto, and its story into the products.

Tradition, elegance, and inherited technology.

The all-around design matches any outfit, and is recommended for those who are new to folding fans.

The Going Out Revolution! The Beauty of Pocket Size

It can hold almost everything! My goal was to create a world first.

With the patented new X structure, "once you experience it, you'll never go back".

This is a new standard that transcends the boundaries of categories.

It is an all-in-one genuine leather case that can hold smart keys, money, cards, and analog keys, all of which cannot be contained in a small wallet.

You can store everything you carry with you on the move in a neat and compact way, making your trips more comfortable and smarter.

It can hold 2 smart keys, 3 analog keys, about 7 to 10 cards, money.

In addition, you can use it in any way you like, depending on your ideas.

You will not have to stress about your belongings when you go out.

It comes in a total of 10 colors.

Rather than color variations, what we put into the colors is a story that overlaps the scenes of Kyoto.

Memories that come to mind when looking at the scenery.

We put a story on each scene and express it as "Rakuiro.

If the story of "Rakuiro" overlaps with the memories of the user, the product will be unique to that user.

We hope you will try overlapping the story with your memories.
