SOMES SADDLE was established as Japan's only full-line equestrian equipment manufacturer. We offer the finest handcrafted leather products, made by our experienced craftsmen using traditional techniques. Especially for those who live life on their own terms, our products offer a sense of satisfaction and peace of mind.
The origin of SOMES SADDLE is "making harnesses". Horses and harness-making techniques have supported the development of Hokkaido since the Meiji era. Let's preserve and pass on this technique to create horse harnesses that can be used in the world market. In this way, harness makers gathered together and a new challenge began to aim for the top.
"Pride as a tool maker" that we have maintained since our founding,A heart that continues to learn and create "authentic" products. We inherit the skills and wisdom of our predecessors and put great effort into manufacturing. Connecting the small discoveries that occur during daily work to the creation of new techniques,Today, we continue to create products that are loved by our customers.
