OPTIONAL ACCESSORIES

  • Plastic presser foot set

    Plastic presser foot set

    The tip holding the leather has been changed to resin, The leather is more slippery than the conventional presser foot, and the feeding performance is improved. Since it is made of resin, it is also possible to process it into the shape you want to skive. 40mm is for step, 20mm is for diagonal. The 20 mm wide presser foot is angled in advance, which shortens the adjustment time.

THOUGHTS IN SKIMINI

We want to connect with our customers even more deeply.
Making leather work more fun and satisfying, so it can be loved by more people.
This is our wish.

  • Cheap and bad tendency

    The “cheap equals bad” mindset

    We have been manufacturing leather making machines for 70 years.
    “It's cheap, so it will break.” “As long as it sells.” “What if it breaks down? Not my problem.”
    In a world where things like this are allowed, I had my doubts.
    High quality is not the only good thing about Japanese products.
    “Let's make something that is cheap but can be used for a long time.”
    “Let's make something that customers will appreciate.”
    “Let's make customers satisfied even after they buy it.”
    This is the Japanese artisan’s “soul” that is underneath it all.
