About Françoise Sagan

Françoise Sagan, at 18 years old, shocked the literary world with her novel Bonjour Tristesse, along with her elegant and colorful dressed-down sense of fashion. This collection of bags is an homage to her consistently refined style and her intuitive, sharp skills of observation.

Sagan Opera Bag

This bag is designed to look simple but it folds open completely uncovering two large inside pockets. The name comes from the way it opens with a motion making the bag look a bit like a bird in flight. It looks flat when empty but its made to carry the essentials and keep its shape. Exterior zipper pocket contains four large card pockets so this bag can double as a wallet. Sturdy handle allows it to be comfortably carried. Crafted in Postalco Geology Goatskin with pigskin lining. The original metal zipper pull is individually cut and finished from a solid brass piece. Handmade in Japan. 




一見シンプルなクラッチバッグですが、実は大きく開く二つのポケットを内包したデザイン。本体が鳥の翼のように開き、快適に荷物を出し入れできます。フラットな印象でありながら、物を入れても形崩れしにくい工夫がしてあります。握りやすいシッカリとしたハンドルつき。 ポスタルコのジオロジーゴートスキンに、カーフスキンとピッグスキンのライニング。外ポケットの中にはカードを小分けに収納できます。オリジナルのジッパープルはひとつひとつ真鍮の塊から削り出したもの。日本製。

About Geology Goatskin Leather

Geology Goatskin Leather

The earthy surface of this leather resembles tiny mountain ranges and river valleys as seen from high up in the atmosphere. These miniature landscapes are created by shrinking the leather. As part of the tanning process the leather grain is tightened and shrunken until the distinctive textured surface is created. The naturally shrunken skin becomes smaller, giving the craftsmen less material to work with but more importantly the leather still retains its softness. Since shrunken leather is more dense, it is more durable. Irregular surfaces textures and colors within each skin are the sign of naturally shrunken leather. We consider these natural variations while making each piece, imparting its unique character. Made in Japan.


Why use leather lining inside the pockets? Your eyes may not see it but your hands do. Pigskin feels great as a lining material and will last much longer than fabric linings.

With use the shine will mellow and surface scratches picked up along the way will get worked in. The color will also deepen with use. To keep the natural surface of this material we have only coated this leather with a light water resistant treatment. Naturally finished leathers and materials may crock or rub off. Please take care to keep your wallet dry. If it gets wet in the rain or with water it is more likely for the colors to crock. If it does get wet pat dry with a soft cloth. Shade dry. If the surface gets dry, please use a mild creme over the entire leather surface (such as clear Delicate Shoe Cream) to replenish the moisture. Be sure to use only clear cream as any color will rub off! At Postalco to get the leather moisturizer into the nooks and crannies we apply the cream with a toothbrush.



この革の表面は、小さな山あり、谷あり、川あり、まるで遠くから見た地球の表面みたいです。鞣しの工程で、革の目をギュッと詰まらせて、シボといわれる風合いを生み出します。 ふつう、革は縮むと小さくなるものですが、ポイントは、しなやかさを失わないようにすること。それでいて、ずっしりしていて、耐久性にすぐれていなければいけません。 ナチュラルな縮みならではの、不ぞろいな質感、色。ひとつとして、同じものがありません。しなやかなゴートスキンは使い込むほどに風合いを深めます。


植物なめしの豚革を使用。染料染めのみで仕上げてあります。 上から顔料やニスを塗っていないので、しなやかで柔らかい革本来の風合いが楽しめます。



水濡れや汗、摩擦などが原因で色落ちする場合がございます。濡れてしまった場合はすぐに柔らかい布で軽く拭き自然乾燥させて下さい。 そのままにしておくとシミが残ったり、わずかに膨張したりすることがありますので十分にご注意ください。通常のお手入れは乾いた柔らかい布で乾拭きするだけで充分です。 小さな傷や水染みは、透明なデリケートクリームを全体になじませることで目立たなくなります。ポスタルコでは凹凸のある革にクリームを塗るときには、細かいところまで塗れるので歯ブラシを使用しています。
