Vintage Sakabukuro Boro Crossbody 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 of this piece is made from Sakabukuro, which are vintage sake filter bags. It has such a unique color from the process. The generous front patch pocket is made from a Boro, or patchwork, of vintage Japanese indigo-dyed Shima Aizome and Kasuri fabrics. The result is just stunning. The top edge of the bag is 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 and top snap closure are made from vintage military slings. The crossbody strap is made from a vintage fire hose and has been deemed the most comfortable strap to carry. The inside is fully lined with gorgeous vintage cotton kimono fabric. There are two natural canvas pockets inside to keep track of your loose treasures. A red leather + antique brass bead fob add just one more layer of interest to this already fabulous piece. This bag is so very special and will start many conversations along the way.
