Studio Ghibli has teamed up with the leather crafters of ojaga design for a series of striking handmade pass cases inspired by the likes of My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki’s Delivery Service, and Castle in the Sky.
Designed to hold magnetic cards (think train and bus passes), each case is handmade and stitched together by the artisans of ojaga design, who have been in the leather biz since 2001 and make their home in Tachikawa, Tokyo.
The cases -- which are all priced at 10,290 yen (about US$103.538) are as follows..
My Neighbor Totoro
Jiji from Kiki’s Delivery Service case
Robot from Castle in the Sky
Flying stone from Castle in the Sky
These collaboration items are being produced by 2PMWORKS who is promising a delivery date of mid-August.
