Hand-dyed Textile Bags from Kyoto
The design of the KOSHO bags has been inspired by the folds of Kimono and the shape of folding fans. Each bag has the "Canvas Ougi" motif adding a modern combination of color and dynamism. The hems of the bag open double folded accented with beautiful, vivid color. Each bag is hand-made by master craftsmen and the colored fabrics are hand-dyed using dyeing techniques typical for Kyoto. The KOSHO collection showcases traditional colors of Kyoto. This KOSHO bag has been selected for the "THE WONDER 500" collection by the Japanese Ministry of Ecomony. Products of THE WONDER 500 collection are being promoted on exhibitions outside of Japan.
