Newsletter 4/2018 Funagata Bag by Kazumi Takigawa

Photo from Kazumi Takigawa

Funagata Bag took its inspiration from the plain brown craft paper bag that are useful carrying things but easily disposed every day. Kazumi dyes a cotton canvas bag with natural material such as tea and coffee that are also produced and disposed everyday. After that the bag is waxed over to give strength resulting in a textile surface a craft paper alike. By using the bags, the surface gains wrinkles and softness that gives the bag a beautiful vintage look. 

Hope you will enjoy this inimitable piece.
