A design in which metal plates in 7 columns and 4 rows are regularly arranged on the surface of the bag. The upper opening of the bag is accented with a clasp called "Kohaze" used for armor. "Kohaze" is made by carving aluminum with the hands of Japanese craftsmen.
There is a zippered pocket on the inside of the bag, so you can put keys and business card holders in it, so it comes with excellent functionality. The weight is reduced by using canvas, so you can carry heavy items such as PCs and books without worrying about the weight!
There are many processes involved, such as drilling holes in the leather to attach the metal plate, knitting the plate with braids, sewing the leather, etc., all of which are done by craftsman’s hand wholeheartedly.
There are four types: red, black, red ichimatsu, and black ichimatsu, all of which are designed so that you will not see any others in the city, so there is no doubt that you will be able to attract attention at a glance! Comes with a special paper box.
Utilizing the traditional crafts of "Kyo-ningyo" and armor making techniques
Kyoto MIYAKE sells samurai bags (kacchu bag) and accessories with the desire “to convey the wonderful charm of Japanese traditional culture and crafts to many people around the world”. It is a traditional craftsman of Kyo-ningyo. In 2007, we started making familiar items such as bags by utilizing the techniques of making the traditional craft "Kyo-ningyo" and the technique of making armor. After that, in 2013, we announced the "Samurai Armor Bag" in Paris, France, and became a talk of the town. Since then, we have been active worldwide, such as exhibiting at exhibitions around the world. It is also introduced in the Japanese media.
A modern and stylish design that makes the most of tradition
Kacchu (armor and helmet) is the armor that one wore to protect oneself from the enemy during the Warring States period. It is made sturdy by connecting plate-shaped parts such that there are no gaps. And this technology is used for May dolls in armor to be displayed on May 5th (Children’s Day) for boys in Japan, and the manufacturing method is now applied to bag making. The plate-shaped parts used for the bag are made of light aluminum parts and combined with leather and canvas to create a stylish design that can be seen at a glance while making the most of tradition.
