About HOFF :









Official launch in 2015 directed by Leif.designpark after 3 year of preparation since the primitive concept when Junichiro Morinaga, an experienced shoemaker, and Takashi Ueno (Leif.designpark), an interior designer, met carding leather.




A circulation and awareness of materials and craftsmanship, we believe they would breed scenes which people, conversations and ideas come together. 

HOFF tokyo aims at creating standard beauty of art which never get influenced by any trend.


about HOFF

About Material :







考え方の転換、デザインの力によってネガティブをポジティブへ昇華させることこそ、HOFFの本領であるといえるでしょう。私達はこの革をCarding Leatherと呼び、ステーショナリーアイテムに落し込むことを考えました。


2015年春よりHOFFのもの作りは、その漉きの作業でうまれた両方の素材、吟面(GRAIN LEATHER)と床革(CARDING LEATHER)を使用し、日本の工房で生産される新しい“形”を追求したコレクションになります。 




Traditionally, some parts of the leather are discarded in order to ensure that the leather maintains the same thickness to makeshoes and bag.The remaining end without the outer layer is less used effectively and sometimes disposed.That is the material created to use for HOFF products,what we call "Carding Leather".We remarked its unique and distinctive taste, tried utilizing to produce useful and simple product.


Speciality of HOFF tokyo is to sublimate a negative into a positive by converting conceptionwith a power of design.


Since Spring 2015, HOFF adopts hybrid collections of both leather from the process mentioned above, which are called Carding leather and Grain leather.
