Want to know more about the prize?

Founded in 2013, Hanelca (which means “jumping deer”) combines modern design and traditional techniques to create smart travel accessories made from high-quality Japanese cotton canvas and natural leather.



Hanelca’s creations are instantly recognizable thanks to their original geometric patterns and colours inspired by traditional Japanese designs.


The link to Japan’s past doesn’t stop there. All the canvas textile is made by a factory in Kurashiki with a history of over 130 years. And the patterns are then carefully hand-printed in a century-old dyeing factory in Kyoto.

The resulting products are high-quality and extremely original.

Which is why Hoshino Resorts OMO5 Tokyo Otsuka has partnered with Hanelca to offer special-edition products, including this month’s prize!



Perfect for carrying A4 paper, this stylish case will keep your 13-inch laptop safe thanks to its shock-absorbing padding.

The contest is now over. Thank you to everyone who entered!

We are pleased to announce that the winner of the contest is Madison Rakah (from UK). Congratulations!
