- SINCE 1917
A large lightweight tote bag made of luxurious one-piece leather. The wildness of horsehide leather is emphasized to give the bag a rough, paper-bag-like feel. The texture of the individual rough materials, which have been further hand-tanned and used, has a rich expression, and the more you use it, the more you will grow attached to it. The interior has one hanging pocket. The lightweight aluminum zipper also adds to the bag's special features.
This is the 4th work of GANZO's popular series 'SACCHETTO'. In this piece, Himeji's prestigious tanner uses vegetable tanned horse hide, made by tanning high-quality European leather in a pit tank for a long period of time. The unique used texture that is hand rubbed by our highly skilled artisans stands out more than any other series so far. Please enjoy the wild texture that changes over time, making most of the horse hides' unique natural image.

GANZO, the highest-quality line available anywhere, pursues the concept of “genuine” throughout the entire process, from the selection of materials, to cutting, thinning, sewing and polishing - without compromise. The persistence and energy of takumi (expert workmen) delivers products created by the hands of craftsman who are well-versed in Japanese culture and techniques.
Hida beef is used for the leather of GANZO's 7QS-H. Originally, cows are raised with an emphasis on meat quality, and raising the quality of the meat naturally leads to a higher quality of leather.
GANZO's products are made from bridle leather produced by J & E Sedgwick & Co. in the UK, who rely on traditional techniques and manufacturing methods handed down through generations.
The Horween Leather Company, a long-established tannery in Chicago, Illinois, was founded in 1905 by Isidore Horween. Isidore, who had worked in tanneries from a young age, came to the U.S. from Ukraine in 1892.
