Established in 1991, the company integrated outstanding craftsmanship with a refusal to compromise artistic quality.
A new series of cosmetic pouches was released and won the hearts of countless professionals with their unique authentic design and incomparable functionality. The products proved to be wildly popular amongst photographers, thereby increasing the recognition and appeal of the ARTISAN&ARTIST brand. One of these products was sent to Barneys New York Tokyo. They were impressed by the product’s innovative design and high functionality.
In 1999, ARTISAN&ARTIST introduced the ACAM Classic Series of camera bags fulfilling the concept of classic simplicity with a minimalist and urbane look. Emphasis was placed on materials and functionality by employing a water and stain resistant canvas for the main body of the bags and an inner case with removable partitions that allows perfect protection for different items. These products have appealed to camera owners and professionals with an entirely new image of a camera bag that looks discreet and simple.
Today, the collaboration between designer and artisan is still at the heart of everything we do. It is about quality, individual attention and the pride of craftsmanship.
Making an ARTISAN&ARTIST product is a unique process where Japanese artisans, who are specialists that perpetuate a unique tradition, use the best quality materials, which they cut, work, and sew by hand. Every single object becomes a unique piece, a masterpiece of handcrafted art that is recognized and loved in Japan and around the world.
