A handcrafted piece inspired by a zero waste lifestyle, this sturdy Japanese cotton material is the perfect carrier for a daily grocer as well as for everyday use.
Dyed with Kakishibu, its botanical nature encourages further deepening and fading in colour.
With increasing awareness of the benefits of this dye, such as being a deterrent to insects, having anti-mould, strengthening and water resistant properties, Kakishibu is known and loved for being a great alternative to synthetic colours.
