Takeshi Yonezawa - Hand-tooled Doctor's Bag


This stunning hand-sewn, hand-tooled briefcase ("doctor's bag" or "lawyer's bag" if you prefer) was created by master leather artist Takeshi Yonezawa in a luxurious Japanese goatskin. He even created the metal frame around which he made the bag.

The signature magnolia-flower tooling motif is a favorite of Takeshi's, and he creates it by using a metal tool to painstakingly depress the leather in the desired pattern (i.e., it is not carving because no materials is removed from the leather) all "free hand," without the aid of stamps.

This bag is truly one-of-a-kind, and is destined to be an heirloom, treasured for generations.

Dimensions: L 17" x H 15" x D 5" (measurements approximate).
