A sublime all-leather shoulder bag entirely handcrafted by the designer in Yokohama, Japan.
Yasue Tsuchihira personally selects the hides that are used to make these exquisite creations. Due to the laborious manufacturing process (entirely by hand), only a very limited number of these bags are made each year.
The design brief for this model was to create a bag which was extremely comfortable to carry, supple and as lightweight as possible, made from carefully selected materials offering an agreeable tactile experience and made using as little metal as possible. Aesthetically speaking, these beautiful bags are a model of carefully thought out simplicity, typical of .urukust designs.
The extremely high quality leather used for the main part of the bag feels chunky and very supple, the hides selected by Tsuchihira-san also offer interesting textures which enhance the bag's appearance.
There is no other layer between the leather shell and the lovely pure linen lining to ensure that the bag remains supple.
The well-dimensioned shoulder strap is just the right width to help spread the load comfortably without being bulky. Made from a different leather to the main body which is more adapted to use on a strap, it is also dyed in a subtly contrasting colour which matches the rest of the bag beautifully.
The inner lining is made from a pleasantly tactile pure linen (one of .urukust's signature materials) and includes a large secure zipped pocket and 2 smaller ones on the opposite side.
This .urukust Leather Shoulder Bag is one of the most beautiful bags we have ever seen, it is a real privilege for us to be able to offer them in our store.
About .Urukust leather:
All of their leather is natural. As a result, it has varying textures and may have slight blemishes, unevenness of color, or wrinkles.
All leather used in their products is processed without pigments in order to feature the genuine leather's character, without hiding natural blemishes and color variation.
Please note that it tends to stain with water or sweat and may discolour. When it comes into contact with water, wipe it off with a dry, soft cloth immediately and air dry. When a water stain lingers, wet a soft cloth, wring out excess moisture, and gently wipe around the stain to make it less noticeable.
Minor scratches will become unnoticeable with use. You can apply an appropriate amount of leather cream if you like. It's not necessary to apply excessive oil since our leather already contains plenty. Only when the surface looks dry, apply leather cream. Wiping it off with a dry, soft cloth is sufficient as daily maintenance.

Designed for artistic nomads or nomadic artists, the Sendak Artist Roll carries your current arsenal of tools with you from studio to coffee shop, or to wherever your inspiration takes you.
Named after Maurice Sendak, an American illustrator and writer of children's books, the Sendak Roll is replete with pockets and compartments of varying sizes and in surprising numbers. Black hole-like, the Sendak will swallow a seemingly unlimited amount of paraphernalia, while still remaining relatively compact and always eminently portable. We know of no other roll-type carrier on the market at this level of quality and offering so much storage capacity.
Lovingly made in the Philadelphia area using mainly locally-sourced materials, Sendak will age beautifully and charm you with its chunky leather and supple waxed canvas.
Truffle is a lovely light green, which works beautifully with the rich brown leather.

Treat the leather fittings of your canvas and leather bags with this balm made in the USA from pure natural ingredients to increase their longevity and beauty.
Note: Smith's Leather Balm is recommended for smooth leathers, such as the Japanese Tochigi leather used in Superior Labor Engineer Bag straps and pockets or the leather straps on the Peg and Awl waxed canvas range. The Balm is also recommended for leather boots.
We tested Smith's Leather Balm on a 2-year old The Superior Labor Engineer Tote Bag on which the leather straps were beginning to get a bit dry. Read our blog article for details.
Smith's are justifiably proud of their recipe.
Every batch of Smith’s Leather balm is handmade in Maine from 3 all-natural ingredients.
1. 100% organic cocoa butter.
Organic cocoa butter is not commonly used in leather treatment due to it’s high cost.
It has become one of the most highly sought after ingredients in natural cosmetic supplies and skin conditioners.
Cocoa butter is rich in vitamin E and contains natural antioxidants that help fight premature ageing and deterioration.
2. 100% organic beeswax.
Organic beeswax is safer and more effective than other barrier creams like petroleum jelly which contain harmful chemicals that can damage stitching.
It acts as a natural waterproofer, sealing the leather and protecting it from harsh elements.
In addition, beeswax functions as a moisturizer, softening stiff, rigid leather.
3. 100% pure sweet almond oil.
Pure sweet almond oil is rich in vitamins A, E and B. It’s a preferred ingredient in natural health and beauty products.
It’s hypoallergenic and safer than less expensive alternatives. It has many wonderful health benefits and works to improve the overall look and feel of leather goods.
No animal fats, synthetic compounds, preservatives or petroleum based products.Just the safest, highest quality natural ingredients.
1. Make sure that your leather is clean and dry
2. apply sparingly using either your hands (the warmth will help spread the balm and the balm will nourish your skin) or a soft cloth or paper towel.
3. Let the balm saturate the leather and dry for 5-10 minutes.
4. Buff with a soft cloth or paper towel.
Note: the leather may darken slightly, this will be minimised if you apply the balm sparingly.

Superior Labor engineer tote bag S
Probably the most iconic Superior Labor product, the Engineer Bag mixes a strong heritage vibe with a timeless aesthetic.
These bags are made from the finest Kurashiki canvas- only 150 feet can be woven on shuttle looms per day, raw brass hardware - produced in a traditional casting factory in downtown Tokyo and vegetable – tanned Japanese leather – slowly and carefully tanned with mimosa extract. The paint stripe and stencil are applied by hand in the Superior Labor workshop, a beautifully restored old schoolhouse.
The robust canvas will become supple with use, the natural leather will darken and take on its own patina.
The bag closes with a brass zipper which can be tucked back into the bag when open for easy access. There are 2 internal pockets for your smartphone, wallet and other sundries, the external leather pocket is great for tickets or a notebook. The bag is just the right size for a 2-3 day trip and is well within hand luggage size limits.
We only have limited numbers of these in stock, make sure you order yours now!

Traveler's Notebook, standard size, camel.
The Midori (now Traveler's Company), Traveler's Notebook, is one of the products that led to us developing NOMADO Store, we love it's practicality, focus on travel, great design and materials. In typically Japanese style, this is an extremely sophisticated and well thought out product behind a deceptively simple appearance. In our opinion, it is a 21st century design classic.
The beautiful, plain cover is made of thick but supple leather from Thailand. The tanning process is limited, which makes the leather more prone to acquiring a stunning patina. The notebook refills use smooth and fountain-pen friendly Japanese paper, which will enhance your writing pleasure. A broad selection of specialised inserts including stick on pockets, zipper files, cardholders, etc. allow you to tailor it further to your needs.
The refills and inserts are simply slipped through a system of textile-covered elastic bands, which make it very easy to add or remove notebooks depending on your requirements. The notebook comes with an attached bookmark.
We have used our TN's for everything from taking notes during board meetings, planning trips to Japan, shopping lists, mind mapping, drafting blog articles and drawing diagrams. Whether you pimp it up with washi tape and stickers or keep it in its original zen-like style, the more you use it, the more it will become your traveler's notebook.
Inserts, refills and replacement elastic bands are available from our store.
The starter kit comes with everything you need to .. get started.

A very cleverly-designed, classic-looking shoulder bag from Kobe, Japan.
Fourship is a compact and lightweight shoulder bag, which is slightly larger than the popular Airship Bag. The leather strap is long enough to be worn crossbody but can be easily adjusted. See the Shipfly model for a different version of this bag with a shorter, fixed strap.
Just like Airship, Fourship is a two-way bag, in the sense that just like the rest of the Marineday range, it can also be carried by hand. The 82 cm long shoulder strap can be easily unbuckled and connected to a brass ringed hole on the edge of the bag opening. This shortens the strap to handle length. The remaining half of the strap is simply stored in the bag.
The bag is lightweight despite being made from robust materials. Sized for portability, the design offers sufficient volume to be practical and a surprising number of storage options.
From a style perspective, the bag is casual but timelessly elegant in a very Japanese way and available in linen canvas and 3 colours.
