Tote Bag (S) / Takakurazome x SANS-SERIF
The artist, Kazuhiko Takakura of Tango, Kyoto, completes each piece by hand using a variety of techniques, from traditional to modern dripping techniques, in his unique dyeing technique.
The features of the SANS-SERIF bag are the Tyvek Destination Sign (which turns on the front of the bus to indicate the destination) that was actually used in London buses, UK, and the high-quality Takashima canvas made in Shiga, which is carefully hand-sewn one by one by the techniques of Kyoto bag craftsmen.
This is a standard S size tote bag that has been made from the beginning as an iconic product of SANS-SERIF. This bag has a perfect size for daily use and is easy to put in a bicycle basket. With a sturdy canvas, leather lining inside, and a raised bottom of leather, it is molded so that it can stand on its own even placed on the floor. This is an easy-to-use tote bag that is surprisingly light for its heavy look.

《Notes on Purchasing》
Since the industrial materials of that time are reused, the surface is cleaned, but stains and dirt may remain. These are left as they are as part of the design texture. As it is a delicate product, I do not recommend washing as it may cause the shape to be lost. However, if the canvas fabric becomes dirty, please pat it off with a soft cloth with diluted mild detergent. Please note that color may stick when using the product in friction or rain, or when wearing white clothing. Please note that the color of the canvas (black) may fade slightly. The white base of Tyvek has fibers raised by friction.
