Skin Project

 Skin Project is collaboration work with Kutsuroudo-Honten who is an shoe maker. This project started to 2007. At first, we requested from Duo league. They are under 18 year’s football league based in Tokyo. We made a Trophy for them. This trophy was made from their old football shoes. We used 300 shoes.

Our action continued from that time with them. Every year we go to teach them the maintenance method of shoes and in return that we get broken shoes. We use them for material. From them, we make sandals and accessories and boots. And we sell those. Part of those proceeds are return to the group which provided broken shoes.

This case becomes a model, and we hold a workshop in each place.
