We are a bag brand with an atelier in Kyoto.
We define bags as the middle ground between fashion and products, and aim to create products that have meaning in living spaces other than when going out. Our designs are kept as simple as possible, yet still have individuality within them. We offer two types: a collection line that explores new possibilities in bag design, and a classic line that focuses on universality.
