TEHA'AMANA is a leather workshop located in Osaka. The workshop is located in a green area a little far from the city, and as the seasons change, we create our products in a relaxed manner while feeling the blessings of nature.
The name of the workshop ``Tehamana'' comes from the name of a girl that the painter Gauguin met in Tahiti. Since Gauguin created many masterpieces after discovering Tehamana, ``We want our customers who pick up our work to have a fulfilling life.'' It seems that the name was chosen with such a wish in mind.
All the leather used at TEHA'AMANA is traditional vegetable tanned leather (tanned leather) tanned in astringent tanks. It takes time and effort, but the more you use it, the softer it becomes and the more you can enjoy its natural texture.
All production in the workshop is done by hand, including cutting, perforation, and hand sewing. By being particular about handcrafting, we are able to select the best quality leather and create a warm atmosphere that can only be created by hand.
Although hand stitching takes time, it can be sewn with waxed linen thread, which cannot be used with a sewing machine, and can create a warm atmosphere. The beeswax used for waxing is homemade from Japanese beehives that are kept in our workshop.
