Square Washi Shoulder Bag

€95,00 EUR


A bag to carry various things, both for work and in your private life. A bag of just the right size and appearance. Among SIWA's bags, the basic model that was designed first and has been made for a long time is "SIWA Square M". This "SIWA Bag Square Shoulder" is a popular model that can be worn on the shoulder in response to requests. A durable and textured bag with the characteristics of new Japanese paper, Naoron. 

It is easy to use, very light, and has a nice touch of Japanese paper. It's the perfect bag to carry with you what you want to keep on your side. The height of the bag is 34.5 cm. Large enough to hold A4 files for work. The gusset is foldable and can be expanded up to 11 cm. When folded, it becomes a very slim bag. And it weighs only 140 grams and is a surprisingly light bag.

In addition, the length of the handle has been adjusted so that it can be hung on the shoulder, so your hands will not be blocked when your luggage becomes heavy, whether it's when you walk or when you use transportation. It is also equipped with an inner pocket that other "square bags" did not have, so you can store your wallet, smartphone, etc.

It is gentle to the touch, durable, and resistant to water. That is the feature of the "SIWA bag" made of new Japanese paper, Naoron. It is a bag that can be useful in your daily life, with a load capacity of 5 kilograms, which makes it easy to carry heavy items even when it rains. 

Each piece is completed by a craftsman sewing with a sewing machine. The strength is increased by the structure where the seams are inconspicuous and the double structure of the bag stitch. For walks, shopping, and work. It suits various clothes and fashions, and the texture will become even better as you use it.

Japan-Best is first and foremost a story about Japanese craftsmen with the influence of contemporary design. We are inspired by the timeless beauty of traditional Japanese craftsmanship, and their ability to adapt to our modern lifestyle. The more brands we meet, the more passionate we become about the stories behind each product; the skills of the craftsmen, or the long tradition of an object left unchanged for generations yet somehow remaining contemporary.

Japan-Best is a collection of Japanese brands, which we have selected for the originality of their design, the quality of their production, the fact that their production is “Made in Japan”, and the long history that they maintain, quite often for several generations.

Our selection of Japanese food is also based on craftsmanship in agriculture. We choose brands based on how they are made and we love brands that continue to use traditional natural techniques to grow food and prepare it. Good packaging and design is always and added joy to find!
