Well, here is a beautiful item that will lend style to your Christmas shopping quest:  an awesome one handle bag made with Kokka fabrics, featuring an original sewing pattern by Japanese designer Yui Tamaki.  She certainly makes the most out of the catchy deer fabric chosen for the project!

The right bag for every occassion

Women are crazy about bags and shoes! Man, what a lame stereotype. But we have to admit that all the women we know at least own more bags than all the men we know. So maybe there is a grain of truth to this. And we also do see the necessity to have different bags for different occassions: Shopping, going out, going to work and so one.

Luckily we have bags for everything. In the last weeks we added quite a few new ones from Japan to our shop. Most of them have a super cute black cat design, which looks very kawaii. There are a couple of hand bags, that are perfect for your everyday life, as they are robust and handy. We also got a lot of beautiful shopping bags. You can just carry them in your hand bag, because you can fold them together, so that won’t use up much room. Also they are very light, but will carry all your shopping goods home safely.

If you are looking for a little bag to take with you when you go out at night, you might like our mini felt shoulder bag. It’s super small, but has the right size to carry your wallet and mobile phone. Plus the cute school bag design is funny and very retro.
