#801 casual carpenter "azuma fukuro" one-handle bag

Super light-weight, durable, foldable and stylish tote bag, made of the highest quality hand-dyed textile from Japan.

This "azuma fukuro" is made from rectangular tenugui textile. You tie the two tips to make the handle - adjustable for your mood and style of the day, or what you are planning to carry. It's suitable for carrying from your shoulder or any part of your arm ;)

The textile is incredibly durable, and the bag can hold surprising amount of stuff, e.g. you'd want to carry a hammer, a measuring tape, a level with this bag for carpentry!

The hand-dyed textile is also durable for wash. There is slight washes of color, but that gives the textile unique look. If it gets dirty, you wash it! And you can use the fresh bag the next day since it's very fast drying.

The textile is hand-dyed by Japanese artisan at the historic studio Todaya in Tokyo, Japan. Since 1872, Todaya has used the traditional chusen technique for hand-dyeing textiles. Unlike printed fabric, textiles dyed with this technique have vibrant colors on both sides and stay bright through after many washes.

The 100% tokuoka cotton fabric, made specially for Todaya, gets softer and softer though each use, and each patterns has a unique name and story associated with it.

Daiku dogu: "daiku" means carpenter, and "dogu" means tools. This Todaya original textile depicts traditional Japanese carpentry tools, which excel at building both small and large scale wooden structures.
