SMART LUXURY ｜01 ETHICAL ELEGANCE
Fur-free and cruelty-free fashion products made without the use of animals is growing in popularity in North America and Europe.
FUMIKODA is a cruelty-free brand that uses no animal parts. Our products are made of non-animal leather that is very durable, exquisitely elegant and sumptuous to the touch.
Even our accessory parts reminiscent of ivory and tortoise shell are actually made from cotton-based materials that are hand-finished by artisans.
Kind to the planet, to animals, and to people. Ethical and effortlessly elegant.
NON-ANIMAL LEATHER MADE WITH CUTTING-EDGE TECHNOLOGY
The non-animal leather used by FUMIKODA is completely different from other synthetic leathers and materials. It is made by craftspeople using cutting-edge Japanese technology to recreate the patterns and texture of real leather.
This non-animal leather is an environmentally friendly material that does not use carcinogens or hormone-disrupting chemicals.
While having a luxurious feel, it is lighter than animal-based leathers. It is also water-resistant and durable, which is why it is the material of choice in luxury car seats.
To this high-quality non-animal leather, we also apply our own unique treatment that creates beautiful colors, is soft to the touch with an elegant, sumptuous texture.
The cellulose acetate used for the accessory parts from the Sabae series is not a plastic made from petroleum resin. Rather, it is a vegetable fiber made from cotton and high-purity pulp.
As it is made from natural, vegetable-based components, this material is low in allergens, and gentle to both human skin and the environment.
Unlike mass-produced plastics, this material’s appearance differs from one item to the next. It is finished by hand, creating a glistening luster and translucency.
SMART LUXURY ｜02 ADORNED IN THE AESTHETICS AND TRADITIONS OF JAPAN
JAPAN’S PROUD TRADITION OF CRAFTSMANSHIP
Japan is home to many traditional handicrafts and artisanal skills passed down for centuries. Today, they stand proudly on the world stage.
All of FUMIKODA’s materials, components, and textiles are made in Japan. We build our products upon the foundation provided by the aesthetics and traditional crafts of Japan.
When it comes to the items that you use every day, we invite you to adorn yourself in and enjoy these traditional handicrafts. Each one is a singular work of art - no two items are the same.
THE ETHEREAL BLUE THAT SPRINGS FROM A 400-YEAR HISTORY
In 1611, Maeda Toshinaga, lord of the Kaga Domain, invited seven metal founders to the city of Takaoka (in modern-day Toyama Prefecture, central Japan). This led to the creation of cast copper items including implements used in Buddhist rituals. This style came to be known as Takaoka-Doki copperware, and it spread across the country.
The turquoise blue of the accessory parts from our Takaoka-Doki series is a priceless color created by Mr. Koji Orii, a traditional craftsman from Takaoka.
FUMIKODA also uses brass from momentum factory Orii, which has helped the coloring techniques of Takaoka-Doki copperware evolve into an art form that perfectly suits the modern era.
SABAE, CATCHING THE EYE OF THE WORLD’S TOP BRANDS
Many of the eyeglass frames from global fashion brands are made with cellulose acetate manufactured in Sabae (in Fukui Prefecture, central Japan).
The accessory parts used for our Sabae series are finished by craftspeople in a workshop in Sabae.
Every part has a look all its own. They are hand-finished, which gives them a glistening luster and a sense of translucence.
