TheHenro Zipped Organiseris named after the Shikoku Pilgrimage, a pilgrimage to 88 temples associated with the Buddhist saint Kukai. The Henro is Japan’s most popular pilgrimage. Every pilgrim carries a basic kit comprising essential daily items, which inspired Ateliers Phileas to design a zipped organiser that would be compact but large enough to carry items that they consider really useful on a daily basis.
Henro is a hybrid design, a 4 loop pen case that also includes space for a B6 slim size notebook or a smartphone, passport, other documents and card slots. The depth (3 cm) was calculated to accommodate the contents it was designed for without bulging. Includes 4 pen loops sized for fountain pens, 3 inside pockets, 1 outer card pocket (for public transport cards for example), zip closure to keep the contents secure.
Genuine shell cordovan outer shell, inside lined with finest full grain vegetable-tanned Tochigi leather that will age beautifully and feels fantastic in use, top of the range YKK Excella zipper.
Handmade in Japan by skilled craftsmen.
This zipped organiser is designed to be practical and a joy to use for many years, whether you use it for work or travel.
