HI-CONDITION Hanpu Tote Bag Large
HI-CONDITION is headquartered in Asakusabashi. This area of Tokyo was famous as “the city of textile and leather craftsmen” but now there are fewer people carrying on that tradition. At HI-CONDITION, they strive to keep that tradition alive with an attention to detail and quality that honours the history of Taito-ku, a special ward of the capital.
HI-CONDITION’s Hanpu Tote Bag combines contemporary beauty with high quality craftsmanship. Made from Hanpu canvas (a material still used in the construction of Japanese sailboats to this day), this tote bag is very durable and weather resistant, though not entirely waterproof. The handles are constructed from leather sourced from European tanneries that have been vegetable tanned, a process resulting in a higher quality leather that will naturally darken with age, similar to the development of patina on a knife. YKK Excella zippers lining the mouth offer smooth, consistent action and are built to last. At the bottom inside the bag is a hand-painted star that will illuminate in the dark, helping you locate what you are looking for in dim lighting.
For those who own one of our HI-CONDITION Knife Rolls, the Hanpu Tote Bag is large enough to fit one of these comfortably. Cooks looking for a fashionable and functional travel bag to carry all their accessories will appreciate the Hanpu Tote Bag, as will those looking for a new bag to carry to work or school.
