Inden is the Japanese craft of lacquering tanned deer leather with artistic patterns. Hundreds of years ago Samurai used Inden as part of their armor because of its strength and durability. The production of Inden for use in samurai armor was born in Koshu, and remains there to this day.

The Karakusa (vines) pattern represents ‘prosperity and longevity.’ The vines are strong and grow long without breaking just like the fullness of life and the continuation of the generations to come.
