Our Shibori Azuma Bag is tied and dyed by the skilled hands of artisans in Arimatsu, Japan. With a wide base, it can easily fit everything from daily necessities to groceries from weekend farmers markets. Available in three patterns and two colors, it can be used as a handbag or shoulder bag, and can easily be folded and stowed away.
Perfect for lovers of DIY, ourShibori Kit provides a chance to experience authentic shibori techniques first hand.
The azuma bag shape has been around for centuries and is a very traditional design. Efficient, functional, and beautiful, we love it for its timeless modernity, as well as how the bag can be made with one rectangle piece of textile, creating no textile waste.
The bags are made in collaboration with the Takeda family, who have represented the shibori textile industry in Japan for over 400 years.
