Besides maple leaves, one signature icon and flavour of the beginning of Autumn 秋 in Japan is the chestnut. That is also the inspiration behind the design and shape of the Kuri Tote 栗 (Japanese for chestnut). The bottom of the bag body is pleated into a rounded shape before being attached to an oval base. To compliment the "curvy" chestnut shape of the bag, it also has rounded bag handles and a magnetic snap closure. Though the bag is not big, it is spacious and can fit daily essentials like your wallet, keys, mobile phone, small water bottle and even umbrella for a quick neighbourhood errand run. There are also two slip pockets, one each on the exterior and lining, for you to keep small things like a transportation card or keys for quick retrieval. Choose from a variety of pretty, cute or quirky Japanese fabrics to craft your Kuri Tote with us today.
