他們的網站上,引述了柳宗悅的一段話:「手與機械的差異,在於手是與心直接相連的。手動而心動,手心相應,創造著物件、為動件添上喜悅,同時保守著道德。 而這正是使物品變得美麗的原因。」




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.”

Even the fabrics of this palm-sized triangle-shaped bag have been dyed inside the workshop of Tsuchiya Orimono-sho. It can be used for storing your treasures such as rings or tiny stones you have collected. When spread out on the surface, it become square in shape, and after putting in small items, you can fold and tie it up. Fabrics do not have a fixed shape, and can adjust freely according to the items inside. This small triangle bag is no different, boasting a wide variety of functions, even as a coaster. In Japan, there is a saying describing the enjoyment of tea while travelling, bringing along simple tea ware for one person so as to make tea whenever you are. The size of this bag seems perfect for putting in a cup for Chinese tea or Japanese green tea.
