- SINCE 1917
A new type of compact wallet with an organ gusset. Bills can be folded in half and stored in the main compartment, and cards can be thrown into the accordion gusset. A coin purse is provided in the back. A new proposal from GANZO, a fusion of classic and innovation.
The series takes its name from the River Avon, which flows through Bristol, a port city in western England. The luxurious exterior and interior are made of dadoed-through bridle leather. The leather is flexible enough to handle folds and bends in the wallet, and even if the leather cracks, the color is dyed through to the core so that scratches are less noticeable. The design also incorporates a classic accordion gusset to make it smaller. It is available in three colors: black, dark brown, and British green.
Thomas ware & sons, a long-established British tannery established in 1840 located on the banks of the Avon River, produces "dyed-through" bridle leather. Raw hides from British-born mares over two years old are used. Tanned slowly in a pit in the ground with vegetable tannin extracted from mimosa, chestnut, quebracho, etc., and dyed all the way through to the core. Vegetable oil is applied to the leather by hand.

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.
A new series of bridle leathers made by Thomas Ware, a long-established tannery in England, is now available.
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.
