The Funagata bag by Kazumi Takigawa combines natural fabrication with a unique design inspired by the humble paper bag. Each bag is crafted from durable cotton in a canvas weave, and dyed with organic and natural dyes including coffee, tea, alum mordant, oolong, and an iron mordant.
Each bag is finished with a waxed treatment, which will soften and fade slightly over time. To stiffen the bag again, and to remove the appearance of fine lines, simply iron lightly or warm the bag with a hot hair dryer and allow to cool. Features one main compartment.
Made in Japan. 100% cotton.
Height: 15 inches, width: 12 1/2 inches, depth: 5 inches; 3 1/2 inches handle drop.

The Funagata bag is a wax-finished canvas bag designed and produced by Tama Art University sculpture graduate, Kazumi Takigawa. The concept originates from the simple brown paper bag, taking its inherent aesthetic qualities and functionality and combining it with a unique design and production process. The end result is a durable and unique bag crafted with longevity in mind. Each bag is naturally dyed with coffee and teas in Takigawa's atelier in Japan.
