Cornelian Taurus is a Japanese boutique leathergoods label designed by Daisuke Iwanaga.
When we met Daisuke and his brother Shinsuke in Paris last year, we were so impressed by the care and respect they had for their craft. The bags and wallets are truly of the highest quality, that is not always achieved in certain "high end" products these days.

The pieces have an industrial approach, which is carefully balanced with elegance, beauty and functionality.
What makes these bags so special are the thoughtful elements and references to Japenese and family culture. The handles are wrapped like the handles of traditional Samuri swords, and the the hardware is often taken from boat rigging in honour of the family maritme history.

All pieces are created using traditional Japanese handcrafts, using Japanese tanned and smoked leathers.

We are so pleased to have this true artisan label at Left, and I'm sure you will be impressed by these luxurious little treasures!
