Introducing the selected items from Japan

Hand made Heri bags

Stylish and ultra-light like a feather !   Hand made bags by  Couture “KANA”

Kanako Nakano, aka KANA, is an hand bag designer based in Kurashiki-city, Japan.  She uses special materials known as Heri which is also used for Tatami (a traditional Japanese interior product).  She holds her own regular exhibitions in Japan. 

The various finishes are created to give a modern but exclusive style, unique to this particular designer.

Surprisingly the textured differences of these hand bags, provides an exceptional combination of being "super light weight (approx. 300 g)"and yet elegantly practical for occasional and everyday use.

We have a stall at Spitalfields Market (http://www.spitalfields.co.uk/saturday-style-market/) on Saturday. The market is located near Liverpool Street Station in the City of London.  Number of bags are displayed on sale including small accessories such as cosmetic pouch, clutch bags, small toto bags.  Please come and feel the beautiful textile and touch!
