Designed in America by Ayumi Horie and Family-Made in Japan

For Studio KotoKoto’s second anniversary we asked our talented Japanese-American friend and potter Ayumi Horie to help us design a special tote bag adorned with her beautiful drawings of playful animals.

To make the bag, we searched far and wide for a small, family-owned Japanese company that produces highly durable cotton canvas and we found Onomichi Hanpu. We then sought out Koyabu Kogei, another small, family-run Japanese company, to make the bags.

The end result is the Tomodachi Tote Bag. Tomodachi is a Japanese word that means friends and the tote bag symbolizes the friendship between cultures nurtured through our love for the preservation and tradition of craftsmanship.
