Japanese Vintage Canvas Open Tote Bag - Grey
Horse & Anchor - Japanese Vintage Canvas Open Tote Bag - Grey
This concept is by far the most unique for us. The open-tote, over-the-shoulder bag is relatively normal in our world, but one with a leather strap is quite unique. We're very intrigued by the person brave enough to wear this, and that's why we brought it in. This is a statement piece. On the last round, this was one of the first bag to sell. We may be crazy, but we think this version is even better. That hand-painted white Kanji on the grey bag just does something to us. The best we know about most of these bags is that they were mail-carrier or rice factory bags. Japanese factories used canvas for any and every task that needed a strong material for transportation. This grey is an incredible example.
Horse and Anchor is a one-man job. He does all of this by hand and no two bags are ever exactly alike. He's using vintage materials (yay sustainability) and artisan handcrafting methods to make these bags. We think the vintage canvas and perfectly aged leather speak to everyone's affinity for the past. The designs and details are just beyond the pale of comparison. When we saw them stacked up at the Inspiration Trade show in LA, it was game over.
