Origami Tote Funagata “Sango” [OR-FU-SAN]
| Kurashiki City, Okayama Prefecture, which is famous as the home of domestic jeans, is actually the number one canvas production area in Japan, producing about 70% of the domestic canvas fabric. This [Origami Tote] is our original tote bag that was custom-made from fabric with the cooperation of canvas craftsmen and denim craftsmen in Kurashiki!
The canvas fabric for this bag is custom-made with a special process, and when dyed, the color shades are different on the front and back, and it looks like a double-sided origami! The sewing is done by a sewing factory in Kojima, Kurashiki, which handles high-end vintage jeans.
Although it has a basic shape, the fabric, dyeing, sewing, and embroidery are packed with attention to detail and techniques that have never been seen before in canvas bags. As it was made in Kurashiki, the home of denim production, it has become a bag that goes well with casual styles such as denim!

The fabric is thick No. 6 canvas, and the stitching is made with thick No. 6 cotton thread used in vintage jeans.
The origami logo is expressed by traditional Sagara embroidery (characterized by round threads like Sagara embroidery). In addition, the other side of the bag is sanded to reveal the pinwheel mark. Both embroidery and sanding go well with rough canvas fabric.
