  • Description

    Kazumi Takigawa's line of dyed and waxed canvas bags take their inspiration from the plain brown craft paper bag. Emulating the look of an ordinary brown paper bag while creating something re-usable and long lasting, Takigawa's experiments led her to a process that includes a traditional dyeing technique and the use of tea and coffee as dyes. Each bag is handmade in limited quantities and unique. The dyes are not completely Colorfast and the Color will fade to a softer light tone over time.

  • Composition & Care

    White lines will appear by bending or scratching the bag in daily use. When you want to remove the lines, iron the part lightly or give it hot airing with a hair dryer. The bag becomes soft by using. When you want the product stiff again, iron it at high temperature with cooking sheets at the under and the top of the product. After cooling it down the bag will be firm as new. Do not wash in water to keep the Color and the texture. Use wrung towel to remove the dirt.
