Season 1 Episode 5: PLOTTER Leather Trends and Growth

In episode 5, we examine PLOTTER’s history and discuss the integral role that leather plays in PLOTTER’s story. Our host, Job, journeyed to Tokyo earlier this year to interview two special guests for this episode: Takayuki Saito, Director of KNOX and PLOTTER at Designphil, and CY, the founder of Kyuseido and member of Designphil’s Overseas Business Department.

Takayuki sheds light on the reasoning behind the various leather options that PLOTTER has offered, providing users with a deeper understanding of PLOTTER’s main leather selections, which include Liscio, Pueblo, Shrink, Bridle, and Horse Hair II Leather. He also provides behind-the-scenes information about PLOTTER USA’s exclusive Shiranami Leather and the origins of the Japan Blue Project. To wrap up the episode, Takayuki, CY, and Job discuss PLOTTER’s commitment to sustainability.

Episode five underscores the vital role leather plays in PLOTTER’s narrative, and we are eager to see what innovative ideas Takayuki will explore in future PLOTTER projects. This episode concludes our two-part series recorded in Japan. We hope users have enjoyed learning about the more technical aspects of PLOTTER. Our gratitude extends to Takayuki and CY for their participation in this special episode.
