Indigo-dyed and Oshima silk bags made from old Japanese fabric /Japanese boro style sewing book


Indigo-dyed cotton cloth has been a part of Japanese people’s lives as clothing and furnishings, and Oshima pongee, a silk fabric with a history of about 1,300 years, is a traditional Japanese craft produced on Amami Oshima Island. These are the works of artist Kotsu Kotsu, who proposes these two popular ancient fabrics that have been loved since ancient times as fashionable bags for modern adults.

Small bags such as wallets, pouches, and medication organizers, compact and light mini bags, pochettes and shoulder bags, various handbags with different patterns and designs, and bags that feel like a set that you want to have with your bag.
All works come with instructions.
