Domestically produced Sanada Himo, which is carefully manufactured on a traditional loom, has never existed because it takes a lot of time and effort to produce it with the width required for a single-lens reflex camera (about 3 cm). The “Sanada Himo Hand Strap” exhibited this time is made by the person in charge of our factory custom brand “J limited” with Sanada Himo, a traditional Japanese craft, and a single-lens reflex camera, which is also a representative industrial product in Japan. With a strong desire to realize collaboration, we have made a special limited quantity with the cooperation of Mr. Hitoshi Ichimura, the only Sanada Himo craftsman in the Kanto region.
