Tomodachi Tote Bags
Available through Studio KotoKoto (not Ayumi’s shop), these Tomodachi (friend in Japanese) Tote Bags are drawn by Ayumi and designed collaboratively with Studio KotoKoto. They’re available in red/silver and blue/silver options. The canvas is sourced from a 80-year-old family-run Japanese company, Onomichi Hanpu, and made by another family-run company, Koyabu Kogei, because of their attention to detail. On the bottom, two birds give each other a high-five and reads “レッツともだち！” Literally, “Let’s Friends!” You can see and read more about the making of these bags on their blog.
