ierib

Japanese-born designer Rei Tanaka is the expert behind bespoke, leather wear label ierib ( backwards spelling is "bi-rei"). Tanaka studied at the London College of Fashion where he trained himself to specialize in leather garments and British tailoring techniques. He now resides in Kyoto, where he produces shoes, bags and jackets that are meticulously crafted out of his signature culatta leather and other types of unique hides.

For his handmade shoes, the inner bottom soles are all hand dyed to prevent color transfer onto socks.The shoe laces are made from traditional Kyoto lace Kumihimo techniques, the blend of Ramie and Polyester are combined for durability. The metal on the shoe laces are made out of pure silver. 

The triangle metals (TECTA), which you can find on the bottom of the heels were used like the Japanese traditional leather sole sandals. In past years, Men were considered stylish by wearing the TECTA (making a clicking sound) while walking on stone pavements.
