About Ikuta & Co.
Welcome to Ikuta & Co.
We are craftspeople with a more than 60-year history of handmaking top-quality bags.
Currently we specialize solely in the randsel, which we create and sell at our workshop and storefront in Ikuno Ward, Osaka.
We handle every stage of production of genuine leather randsel, from cutting the material to putting on the finishing touches.
With origins in the Netherlands (from which its name derives), the randsel is a backpack used by Japanese schoolchildren, made so durably that it lasts through all six years of elementary school.
Today, in addition to being ruggedly built, randsel are available in a range of stylish colors and designs, with a focus on safety features as well.
Recently they have also become popular fashion accessories among Hollywood actresses and other celebrities outside Japan...
perhaps this is what led you to our website!
