Simple is beautiful. Meet our refreshing, new Obachan Bag おばあちゃん (Granny Bag in Japanese). The distinctive yet classic design feature of this bag is the use of twill tape to bind its curvy opening and at the same time stitch its handles. Release its magnetic snap closure and you have access to 3 practical compartments on its lining--our favourite water bottle compartment, a pen slot and a slip pocket for your mobile phone. You will also learn to add a removable, covered bag base for better bag structure. Choose from a variety of chic or cute Japanese fabrics and pair it with cream or black twill tape for the binding and handles.
