Tsuchiya Kaban

From Tokyo to the Apple State. A sunny November morning at Fieldwork with the sweet people of Tsuchiya Kaban. More below.

Here we’ve got girl wearing their handcrafted ‘Randoseru’. This little number has been in production since 1965 (image two). Traditionally a backpack that grandparents bought for their grandchildren to last an entire school career. That’s totally my style — wear the same thing every day for a decade or two. I love this bag’s structure — it protects all my fragiles. Makes me feel bright eyed and bushy tailed.
