As a style item, it opens up new possibilities: as a shoehorn, as an aestheticallypleasing objet, or as a gift for a valued friend. This pocketable shoehorn comes with a glass case for chic decoration, making it the perfect gift. The more you use the Bluestone shoe horn, the more you will come to appreciate the beautiful contrast offered by the materials of natural indigo-dyed leather and brass. As the leather ages, there will be exquisite changes in colour due to the unique effect of air oxidation on indigo-dyed leather, and the inclusion of brass adds a refined antique look. The packaging of the glass case has a gender-neutral appeal, making this an ideal gift for all. It is not only practical and portable in its function as a shoe horn, but also aesthetically appealing as an objet d’art to be displayed in the entranceway.
Brass has long been used in buildings and furniture, as a material resistant to corrosion. The irregular surface is based on a natural pattern hammered out by hand by a metalworker; created with a special cast, the feel of the brass is alluringly warm.
Natural indigo-dyed leather, prepared and dyed by the artisan dyers of Kyoto using the traditional hand-applied wax-resist roketsuzome method. The unique pattern known as fubuki (snowstorm) is created by a rare and precious technique currently only performed by a single master dyer in Japan.
The key ring and clip are made of antique look brass, selected for their harmonising hue. A high level of functionality combines with a compact size for superb portability.
The glass case included has an auspicious eight-sided column design with a matching brass lid. The shoehorn makes a beautiful addition to the home, as a fresh accent to the interior of your entranceway.

Sukumo leather uses techniques handed down by multiple master craftsmen. The farmers (ai-shi) produce the natural dyes made from fermented indigo leaves, following more than 600 years of Japanese dyeing tradition. The dyers (some-shi) use proprietary indigo dyeing techniques to create beautiful natural indigo leather, and the tanners use Japanese technologies and artisanal skills. The indigo leather is tanned with indigo leaves using ancient methods practised by tanners in Tatsuno, Hyogo. We use only high-quality hides to create our full grain, natural indigo-dyed leather. Some natural imperfections may be visible.
