The marriage of excellence and fashion: a unique bag made in genuine leather, featuring two pure silk front panels, woven in characteristic Kyoto style Nishijin ori.
The top quality of the materials meets the creativity of Nekado and artist Hisakazu Suzuki, in a two-color leather bag (black on one side, white on the other), enriched by a pattern inspired by water on the front panels.
The front panels, born from the mind of artist Hisakazu Suzuki, feature a design inspired by moving water. The panel on the white-leather side features a black and grey background on which the pattern is woven, while the panel on the black-leather side sees the pattern on a pitch-black background.
The design featured on the panels is titled "Water". In the designer's words, “water is the source of life. For this product, I wanted to represent clear, beautiful water moved by the wind above.” The final design was then inspired by the way water is used as a metaphor in Taoism, representing the way we should live our lives: free, uncontained, ever flowing and ever changing in harmony with nature.
The bag features a total of 5 pockets, all virtually unnoticeable when not in use: 2 side pockets (1 small, 1 large) and 3 inner pockets (1 zipper and 2 slip pockets).
This bag is made in silk and genuine leather. Please handle with care.
• Do not bleach
• Do not apply leather-specific cleaning products on the silk panel, and vice versa. Warnings
Due to the nature of Nishijin ori
weaving style, the fabric used for the front panels sports characteristics that may appear unusual to the Western eye.
• It is slightly more stiff than other fabrics made in silk.
• It has a suede-like glowing texture, which changes significantly according to lighting.
• Thin, darker lines appear in some spots. This is, in fact, recognized as a typical Nishijin ori weaving feature in Japan, inevitable when larger pieces of fabric are used, such as in this case. Notes
• This product may not be returned. Items that you receive damaged will be reimbursed. Please read our return policy
