ORU | 折る - flat pack micro cases

ORU 折る meaning 'fold' in Japanese, is a collection of hand folded micro cases made from a single piece of leather. The extraordinary simplicity of the ORU design greatly reduces the overall environmental impact of the manufacturing and distribution process.

Oru leathers are the highest quality, produced using organic botanical extracts from Mimosa, Québracho and Chestnut barks and conform to the highest European environmental standards.
