Making luxurious designs for over 400 years
In 1582, Japan, INDEN began crafting durable, functional designs for the popular Samurai warriors to use as decorations for war armor. The leather used was so light-weight, flexible, and unique, that the items were eventually recognized as more than just battle accessories. Many Japanese civilians and trendsetters began looking up to the Samurai warriors for fashion and style inspiration, and from there the Inden fashion house was born.
For over 400 years now, Inden has been making high-end leather designs. The long history of the brand stands firmly behind the high-quality deer leather and the natural sheen of wooden lacquer that is adorned by hand on the exterior of each item. The lacquer not only protects the leather but gives the design a unique, hand-pressed pattern that makes every Inden product truly one-of-a-kind. Carry a piece from Inden est.1582, and you will carry a timeless piece of history with you wherever you go.
