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.

This Hisago (gourd) pattern is a symbol of happiness and success. In the time of Samurais, gourds were also used to symbolize victory.
