A shopper bag made in collaboration with a traditional craftsman in Kyoto and a young bag designer who is active in Kyoto.
Using the traditional technique used in Kyoto Nishijin "Hand-rubbing foil", a uniquely developed "Silver foil" is used to create a three-dimensional shadow by spraying black ink to create the illusion of uneven metal. .. Hand-made silver leaf is hand-made because it is all hand-made. There are two types of handles using leather strings and Kyoto braids.
