Large-capacity tote bag that allows you to take out things as soon as you open them
A large-capacity tote bag that can be used not only for storing personal items such as smartphones and wallets, but also for outdoor activities and short trips. There are various features, but they are roughly divided into two.
The wide bottom is 18 cm and the opening is 32 cm, and 6 wine bottles can be easily put in. Also, since the bottom plate is attached to the bottom, it is safe to put a lot of heavy things. If you open your bag, it's easy to find what you're looking for and keep things organized.
The opening of the bag is decorated with "piping", which wraps the edges in a tape shape, and the handle extends from the bottom and is sewn firmly to the main body, making it even more sturdy. Also, if you have a lot of luggage and it becomes heavy, you can carry it on your shoulder.
New material "Naoron" that inherits the technology of Japanese paper
A new material that inherits the technology of Japanese paper from the desire of the Japanese paper maker Ohnao, located in Ichikawadaimon, Yamanashi Prefecture, which has a history of 1000 years, to "get more people to use Japanese paper products", thus we have developed "Naoron". Its features are the following three.
When your heard of the word "paper", it's easy to think that it will tear immediately, but the load capacity is 5 to 10 kg, so you don't have to worry about tearing even if you put heavy documents or materials in it.
Supple while being durable as well
It is resistant to water, dries faster than fabric products, and has the property of becoming stronger when it gets wet.
Once wrinkled, it does not recover and becomes wrinkled
On the contrary, the product brand "SIWA" was born in order to make the best use of its characteristics as "texture" and to enjoy using it like leather that "gain more grainy textures" as it is used.
The origin of "SIWA" comes from the word "wrinkles" on paper (shiwa) and the opposite reading of "Japanese paper" (washi). Under the theme of "everyday use," we sell a variety of products under the theme of "genderless and ageless," such as bags and accessory cases that use "Naoron."
Also pay attention to "sewing technology" where the seams are inconspicuous
Designed by FUKASAWA Naoto. An award-winning industrial designer such as the "Isamu Noguchi Award". In addition, the material "Naoron" is excellent not only in functionality but also in sewing technology. The structure is such that the seams are inconspicuous because the craftsmen sew each stitch using a sewing machine.
