Vintage Sakabukuro Katazome 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 pieces. 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 snap pocket is made from vintage Japanese indigo-dyed Katazome fabric. The pattern is just stunning. The bottom and top edge of the bag are reinforced with super soft chocolate 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 hidden snap closure are made from vintage military slings. The inside is fully lined with gorgeous vintage cotton kimono fabric. Two denim pockets inside keep loose treasures at hand. And the cherry on top is the the utterly unique removable fob made from vintage silk kimono ties (haori himo) paired with a variety of beautiful beads. This bag is so very special and will start many conversations along the way.
