We’ve all seen it. The legendary big concho with the Native American image against a beautiful, often worn-out, leather background: a Redmoon wallet – one of the most recognized leather products made exclusively in Japan.
“Redmoon products are handmade by skilled Japanese artisans, personally selected by the owner, Goto Keichiro himself…”
“Redmoon leather goods are manufactured using a unique cutting tool and a 40 year old Vintage foot pedal sewing machine.”
With more than 23 years of leather crafting history, Redmoon products are handmade by skilled Japanese artisans, personally selected by the owner, Goto Keichiro himself, who has kept the responsibility of finding the best leather craftsmen to maintain the integrity and quality of his brand. Redmoon uses exclusively produced Aged Saddle Leather at “THE WORKS”, Redmoon’s special leather factory. Redmoon was born from Japan’s American Casual (Amekaji) subculture. Redmoon believes in applying complex designs to long-lasting leather products. They generally avoid minimalism on purpose as a form of fashion statement. The Redmoon name comes from the idea that a Native American made all their tools with the use of only one knife and Goto Keichiro thought it would be interesting to try to apply that concept to the making of wallets. Of course, there is more than one tool used in the production of a Redmoon wallet, but the spirit remains the same: do more, with less. Redmoon is the name that was given to the Native American chief in Redmoon‘s famous logo.
“Below is a video that shows the genesis of Redmoon and part of the production process. It’s a great little window into Redmoon’s culture.”
Redmoon leather goods are manufactured using a special cutting tool and a 40-year-old Vintage foot pedal sewing machine, adding a vintage character to their leather goods. The vintage sewing method combined with hand stitching also ensures that the stitching in all their leather wallets is tight to the eye, but flexible enough to withstand everyday longterm wear. They do not use any adhesive or glue in the construction of their leather goods, which helps ensure durability. Redmoon ‘s craftsmen are individually responsible for a specific stage in the production process to ensure standardization and the development of full expertise.

“One benefit of getting a nice long/medium length leather wallet like those made by Redmoon is that it can help with this problem and even out the back of your worn out jeans by properly filling up the rear pocket”
The leather used in Redmoon leather goods ages beautifully over time. In some ways, these wallets are just like raw denim… the more you use them, the more beautiful they get. All developing uniquely depending on the wearer.
As a final point, we’d like to give you a tip. Most men’s jeans – even slim-fitting pairs – aren’t very tight in the rear hip area, and can often sag and look awkward over time. One benefit of getting a nice long/medium length leather wallet like those made by Redmoon is that it can help with this problem and even out the back of your worn out jeans by properly filling up the rear pocket.
