hanelca x PRAS sneaker project


We posted about the sneakers the other day, and this is continued story.
The textile design for sneakers was newly made with PRAS, the sneaker brand, and we are going to produce hanelca’s original items with the pattern.
Looks very unique, doesn’t it? This line will be released with the sneakers in next summer.



a collaboration work with PRAS and hanelca




Let us introduce you new products coming in next spring. We get to know PRAS by chance, a sneaker maker in Kojima, Okayama prefecture, and are planning to produce sneakers, limited version with both names.
PRAS features production in Japan using high quality domestic material, and we felt that we have same persistence in production theory and taste of products, so we hit it off right away!
PRAS usually makes solid color sneakers, but we apply hanelca’s stripe on textile by hand-printing before cutting, so each pairs would be one of a kind because of different trim of patterns.
We are expecting to sell this special sneakers on our online store from next spring.
Please contact us for more details.



hanelca umbrella!




hanelca is going to release a folding umbrella as our next new item.
It is made by Onouchi Shoten, an umbrella maker in Kyoto established in 1903. Made-in-Japan umbrella is getting rare since the number of umbrella makers in Japan has decreased in each of the past few years.
We honor the fine quality and the beautiful shape of umbrellas they make. The fabric is our cotton Furoshiki(wrapping cloth, and it’s also made in Kyoto!) treated with UV protection and water proof finish.
Available from next spring. Don’t miss it!!

new stockist in London!



New stockist in London! Here is the press release about the shop. “Situated in the heart of Notting Hill, Couverture and the Garbstore was launched in 2008 by designers Emily Dyson and Ian Paley. Housed in an exquisitely re-configured period townhouse close to the famed Portobello Market, the concept store presents over three floors. Deliberately eschewing big name brands in favour of something more intuitive and authentic, the destination store focuses on niche independent labels, exclusive collaborations and championing emerging talent.”
Couverture carries women’s and kids’ wear and homeware, and the menswear brand Garbstore is design by Ian Paley, Emily’s husband. You will find our kamibukuro and pocketable slippers in the Couverture floor. Have a look!
