We are pleased to announce the addition of a Mamiya 7/7II and Fujifilm TX-1/Hasselblad Xpan version to our popular range of hand-made leather camera cases.

The case looks absolutely fantastic!!

Customer who purchased the TX-1 case, from Hong Kong

The irreplaceable aspect of a skilled craftsman is that unlike a machine in a factory, he can do things for you that are special and usually not available. Mr Hirano, the manufacturer of our range of beautiful handmade camera cases, is able to design a camera case for a classic camera even though it is not usually in the range of products. For that however, we need a sample camera to model the case so we are always on the lookout for new cameras that would benefit from a case.
