The word “i ro se” means “brothers” in ancient Japanese used in Kojiki, the oldest extant chronicle of Japan. It is also regarded as the origin of the word “iro (color)”.
i ro se is a brand established by two brothers. When they were children, they often had fun making toys with junk in and around their house. Now, as two grown-ups, they made a platform called i ro se where they create products with the same playfulness they had in their childhood.
i ro se sets playfulness, the sense of discovery and the originality that manifests as a result of knowing who you are as its fundamental values and cherish impromptu works: their products are not pre-designed in their mind, but made with the spontaneous movements of their hands.
About the Products
The main theme of the exhibition is childhood fun. The representative product series “SEAMLESS” is made from one sheet of leather not sewed but folded up like origami into a bag or a wallet. Despite the simple look, it has a well-thought-out structure.
