Japanese Leather Market To Make Overseas Debut in Malaysia

Kuala Lumpur,20.December 2018.

Nihon Kawa-ichi, a showcase of the charm and quality of Japanese leathers, is set for its debut in Malaysia in January 2019.


The first ever overseas expansion of Nihon Kawa-ichi, which literally means the Japanese Leather Market, will be held from 4 to 17 January 2019 at the Ground Floor of ISETAN The Japan Store (LOT 10) in the center of Kuala Lumpur. The Nihon Kawa-ichi fair has been held for more than 60 times in a good number of department stores across Japan since its inception in 2011.


Poised to introduce JAPAN LEATHER PRIDE to Malaysians, the first event of Nihon Kawa-ichi in Malaysia will feature approximately 300 leather products from seven Japanese bag and leather goods manufacturers. All exhibited goods are made of leather tanned in Japan and come in a wide range of designs and colors, including leather bags that can be used as backpacks, shoulder bags, Dulles bags, etc. Wallets, coin purses, and card cases will be available, too.


A complimentary piece of chamois leather, which can be used to wipe glasses or LCD screens, will be given to every visitor who responds to a questionnaire during the fair. In addition to the opportunities to learn to distinguish different materials by touching and feeling natural leathers, visitors of the fair will also get to watch how leather is processed and completed through a VR animation, which offers a true-to-life experience as if you are watching it right in the factory. All are welcome to appreciate the charm of Japanese leathers.
