Leather goods brand Genten has released the “STAR WARS collection”!

Pre-sale begins Friday, April 26, 2024 at Kichijoji Parco, Sendai Parco, Parcoya Ueno, and ONLINE PARCO.

Queenpo Co., Ltd. has released the "STAR WARS collection" from genten, a sustainable leather goods brand that protects the environment! Items featuring "R2-D2" and "BB-8" will be on sale.

Since the first film was released in 1977, the Star Wars series has continued to fascinate people with its epic story set in the galaxy and its unique characters. On May 4th, which is designated Star Wars Day after the line in the film, "May the Force be with you," fans around the world celebrate Star Wars culture and enjoy the movies.

Genten is releasing a charm of the astromech droid "R2-D2," one of the most popular characters in the series, and a pass case of "BB-8." The adorableness of the characters in the series has been kept intact, and the meticulous handiwork of artisans has breathed new life into them.

The charms and pass cases are special items from the "STAR WARS GW COLLECTION -PARCO 55th CAMPAIGN-", which will be available in advance at PARCO stores nationwide from Friday, April 26th. These will only be available for a limited time, so don't miss out.

Astromech droids are robots that repair and maintain spaceships and assist in piloting.

Although R2-D2 does not speak human language, he expresses his emotions through a combination of his gestures and the electronic sounds he emits, and shows a wide range of facial expressions. He also has a brave and fearless side, and has saved Anakin and Luke from many difficult situations.

This charm retains the cuteness of R2-D2, which has been a huge hit since the series' early days, while also showcasing the droid's precision.

Along with R2-D2, BB-8, which appeared in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, is also immensely popular. In the film, he begs the main character, Rey, to follow him, and then he acts depressed. I'm sure many people have been captivated by his adorable appearance.

The cute snowman-like shape was inspired by two circles, one large and one small, that director J.J. Abrams drew on a napkin. BB-8 moves by rotating its round body, and when it hurries, its head tends to lag behind a little… We expressed this charming figure in a way that goes beyond the framework of a pass case.

Not in mass production

The level of reproduction that can only be achieved by hand


In transforming the characters into leather products, Genten's meticulous handiwork has been used to faithfully reproduce the cuteness and precision of the droids.

For example, "R2-D2" is made by layering many finely cut leather parts. We were particular about expressing even the smallest details with leather, such as the shine inside the black lenses.

In some places, the leather is layered in as many as five layers. The warm look is the result of meticulous handcrafting, with each piece carefully finished, in a way that cannot be achieved through mass-produced products.

The back of each piece features the "STAR WARS" logo and the "& TM Lucasfilm Ltd." copyright.
