Draw string tote bag

Tokyo, Japan






I sewed a big tote bag last year. I cut “Bingata” panel in Okinawa, and arranged it in the front side and the back of the bag.
Okinawa is a prefecture in Japan that exists most in the south. And, “Bingata” is a traditional print cloth used for clothes of the emperor in Ryukyu (Okinawa today).
I presented the grandmother this bag.

Material Notes

Bingata panel, cotton canvas, Oxford, Nylon code, bubble polyethylene sheet
