NFTB Dajczman Leather Case

NFTB Dajczman Leather Case

Conceived in the workshop of Paris-based leather artisan Dajczman, specialized in “making accessories that others don’t,” this ultra-luxurious Nikka From the Barrel leather case is the stunning result of an orchestrated effort involving multiple high-end crafts.
By sliding out the bronze nail, first step in the special ritual to unlock this discreet and mysterious monolith, one discovers a pattern inspired by the Japanese art of katagami, a bottle pourer, and of course the iconic Nikka bottle, which inspired Dajczman to bring this crazy project to La Maison du Whisky in the first place!
