Do you have a bag that suits your lifestyle?

You might find that choosing a large totebag, or rucksack, you’ll end up putting a lot of things in, things that you don’t potentially need, making the bag very cumbersome.

 On the other hand, maybe you choose an overly small bag that looks stylish, but in reality doesn’t let you carry even the essentials.

Everyone's had one of those moments where you wanted to get something out of your bag, but your just can't find it.

We want to help you live your life to the best, creating a back that is just the right size, letting you carry just what you need while also looking stylish. We have created a bag that fits to your body, is functionable but also fashionable.


When you look at the majority of sports bags, while extremely functionable, aren’t much to look at when comparing to normal brand name bags.

We want to bring to the stage a bag that brings together usability, design, as well as amazing quality materials.

In our pursuit of a great functionable bag, the most important point has been the pockets and their storage capacity.

●Small Pocket|Sized to fit even an overly sized phone!

●Large Pocket|Comes with a zip to help secure your items, and can fit everything you need for a day out, such as passport, wallet, as well as a small book and notepad

The bag we have created is split into two pockets, separate from each other, with the bag as a whole being able to fit snugly against the body.

It works as a unisex bag, being great for a variety of body types.

You can wear it over the shoulder, or around the waist, letting you wear the Secrecy Body & Hip Bag in various scenes be it casual or formal.

Carried over the shoulder as a Cross-Body Bag

Carried around the waist on the hip

Fits both over your coat or jacket...

or under it depending on your style

The majority of the bag is created using 100% first class cowhide leather. As it is cowhide leather, while it is tough and not so flexible in the beginning, after using the bag a lot, it becomes quite soft and supple.


With COVID-19, it is necessary to keep yourself and your belongings clean to reduce the risk of infection.

With this bag, due to the pockets being separated, you can reduce touching all your belongings unnecessarily when trying to get what you want.  We hope that this bag helps you as you get used to the new normal.

Cross Body bag

Hip Bag

Great for grabbing your metro pass/ Oyster Card/ pass quickly when heading towards the gates.

When you use the bag as a hip bag, you can even cover it with your jacket, leaving you free to move about freely, great for work!

You can pull a rather smart look, without putting a lot things in your pockets


The bag fits quite well against your body, letting you use your hands fully, which makes it great for when you are with kids.

Even here in Japan, you can wear the bag with a kimono without worrying if it fits the style!

We have had praise from both male and female wearers and from users from the West!

For this Crowdfunding Project, we are bringing two new colours to the table! We are adding in addition to our current line up of Black・Navy・Camel・Gold・Dark Brown we have also created a Red Body & Hip Bag as well as a Blue Body & Hip Bag! We hope that these new colours appeal to this Western Audience! 


GRACIEUX was able in 2010, in the year that would see the 100th birthday of Mother Teresa, with a vision in mind “to do something that can be helpful for others”, and the cooperation of Mr. Oki, who had been a photographer of Mother Teresa, to open a charity gallery. In creating this event, I was able to meet people from Bangladesh, who were able to lead me to Motherhouse.

From there, I was able to visit Bangladesh, and see the area for myself. While there, I put it upon myself to do something that can help the people of the area, and was able to meet with a local leather factory, a factory that wished to create something with us. We then formed a bond, and I started to design original products that customers can enjoy.

However in 2011, with the Great East Japan Earthquake causing the loss of both my parents, I wasn't able to bring the project to life. However I realised that during that time, many people around me helped me, and I felt the urge to carry on and help other become stronger, and from there I was able to reconnect with my connections in Bangladesh as well as Vietnam and even here in Sendai, and in July 2015 I was able to launch the brand【Secrecy】.

The name of the brand “Secrecy” comes from a wish to create mysterious products that people can also enjoy.

The Secrecy Body & Hip Bag is Made in Bangladesh.

While volunteering at Mother House, a house that is linked to Mother Teresa, I met a factory owner from Bangladesh.


The owner was a female owner which in itself is quite rare in Bangladesh, and after talking, she told me that she wished to work with me, that she would like to help create goods in Bangladesh for me, and as we kept in touch, we exchanged information frequently, and we were able to create a bond and we started to produce things in Bangladesh. Due to not having a trading company it was rather difficult to proceed, however we kept at it, and we finally created a product that we could sell with confidence!

Since last year, in order to help the factory in Bangladesh combat the economic impacts of the coronavirus, we have launched various products and projects via crowdfunding. We hope that we can help the factory keep open even though it's a tough time for the whole world


There are many products about for cleaning and caring for leather bags, but one way that we recommend is the use of Nivea cream. By adding a small amount to a dry cloth and rub it into the bag, the leather can be maintained. It can be used to help reduce any dirt build up or scratches on the bag, making it look fresh and new!

Risks and challenges

■During the crowdfunding campaign as well as the production period, the design or materials used may change. ■The bag is made from real genuine leather so there may be imperfections in the leather when it arrives. Also the colour may be slightly different to the colour in the pictures as they are the dyeing process is quite a delicate process. ■The shipping of the Body & Hip Bag may be delayed due to several factors. This may be due to the coronavirus affecting supplies of leather as well as how many items need to be produced.

On the 100th anniversary of Mother Teresa's birth, celebrated in 2010, GRACIEUX opened a charity gallery with the cooperation of Mr. Oki, who has been photographing mothers with the desire to "help ourselves." This charity event led me to meet the people of Bangladesh and led me to the "Motherhouse" in Bangladesh. After visiting the site and witnessing the current situation in Bangladesh I wondered if there was anything I could do to help, which led to my encounter with a local leather factory and enthusiastically conveyed my desire to work with them. After a the earthquake in 2011 and some problems between Bangladesh, we unfortunately couldn't carry on working with the factory for a while, so after lot of trial and error, the original brand [Secrecy] was launched in July 2015 with the help of Vietnamese factories. From there we have re-established ourselves with the Bangladeshi factory and continue to work with them today!
