This tool holder is crafted from flexible and sturdy oiled leather that will last a lifetime. It contains two pockets to snugly hold the pens and tools you use in your daily life; it closes with a brass button, which you can fasten at two different points to accommodate differently-sized tools. The leather will soften and darken with use, transforming into your own unique belonging that fits your tools just right. 

Because each case is individually crafted from organic leather, no two cases are the same. There will be individual differences in the color, thickness, and texture of the leather.

About The Superior Labor: Founded by former auto mechanic and leather artisan Makoto Kawai, this lifestyle brand crafts a variety of high-quality everyday tools that promote slow and intentional living. Kawai considers The Superior Labor as a natural extension of his experience working with cars, crafting leather goods, traveling, and curating vintage wares. All of The Superior Labor’s design and manufacturing takes place in a former elementary school campus in the rural and mountainous area of Kaga-gun, Okayama Prefecture, where Kawai lives and works. Called “nap village,” it welcomes visitors to come and experience The Superior Labor’s living and crafting philosophy while exploring the wonderful nature of Mount Hongu.
