- SINCE 1917
GANZO's standard square day bag. The size has been kept the same, but a slit has been added to accommodate a suitcase handle, and the tape has been made smoother so that the shoulder size can be easily adjusted. The zippers are aluminum zippers and coil zippers to reduce weight. While utilizing GANZO's design, the challenge was to reduce weight, resulting in an ambitious product that is compatible with both everyday and business situations.
As a new suggestion from GANZO, the body of the bag is made of Ultrasuede®, a material produced by Toray Industries, since 1970. Ultrasuede was developed by studying the structure of deerskin leather as an artificial leather, not natural leather. It is a lightweight material that is constantly evolving, with excellent durability, and easy to use. GANZO has used the technology cultivated in genuine leather to tailor the Ultrasuede without compromise. Four items were developed with the intention of creating a large, yet lightweight, genderless design.
Since its product launch in 1970, Toray's technological innovation has created a highly functional suede-like man-made leather that has continued to evolve. The raw material, polyester ultrafine fiber, is an amazingly thin fiber with a total length of 900 km and a weight of less than 1g. The material is made by intertwining bundles of ultrafine fibers and polymer elastic material in a three-dimensional manner, closely intertwining them like deerskin tissue. GANZO added a water-repellent agent in the post-processing, and developed a thick yet light weight original material suitable for bags.

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.
