Vintage Sakabakuro Tote

350.00

This is an unbelievable one-of-a-kind bag inspired by our summer travels to Japan. We came home with some really special vintage fabrics and pieces that all come together in a few special bags. The body and special patchwork of this piece is made from Sakabukuro, which are vintage sake filter bags. It has such a unique color from the process. The bottom, side details and top snap closure of the bag are all reinforced with super soft saddle veg tanned leather that's gone through several processes to achieve a supple "vintage" feel that works so well with the rest of the bag. The tote straps are made from vintage military slings. The top edge of the bag is reinforced with beautiful Japanese indigo-dyed Kasuri ikat fabric. The inside is fully lined with gorgeous vintage cotton kimono fabric. Two natural canvas pockets inside keep loose treasures at hand. This bag is so very special and will start many conversations along the way.

17"x16.5"x4.5"
