Tsuchiya Orimono-sho hand-loomed bag (S)
Located in Nara, Tsuchiya Orimono-sho is a workshop that produces everyday household items starting from the process of farming its own cotton, to the weaving and dyeing of fabric.
A quote by Yanagi Sōetsu that she posted on the website of Tsuchiya Orimono-sho saying, “The difference between handiwork and machine is the real human touch which is connected straight to the heart. […] The hands follow the heart; together, they create works with elements of joy. Intrinsically the principle and moral of handicraft are upheld, to maintain the authenticity of the works.”
Made with hand-loomed fabric which is equally substantial and soft. Carrying the bag would feel exactly like holding a comfy pillow around. The bag is sewn together from a rectangular piece of fabric using the technique of Japanese origami. When being held by hand, the bag would appear rhombus in shape; when worn on the shoulder, the bag would look turn triangular in shape like an onigiri. The bag can be folded up for easy storage, making it a perfect companion for travel or everyday use. The bag can be used on both sides.
Materials: Cotton, Linen (outer shell and lining)
