ban inoue : caya handbag


Ban Inoue

From the beautiful ancient capital Nara, Ban Inoue make breathable garments and accessories in simple styles, allowing the soft texture and natural comfort of their caya cloth to take focus. Caya is a significant Japanese textile woven from pure cotton with a lightweight, netted structure, which becomes waffle-like in texture with each wash and wear. Traditionally woven in Nara, it is renowned in Japan for a beauty of near spiritual quality, inspiring poetry and ukiyo-e woodblock prints of the Edo period. Today, Ban Inoue wish to preserve the gentle aesthetic and practical properties of caya cloth with their range for home and travel.

Fully lined in Japanese cotton with 2 small internal pockets (one with gusset), this tidy caya handbag is just the size for your daily essentials. Closing with a concealed Velcro tab, the shoulder strap features a sewn-down panel in fine cowhide leather, for structure and longevity.
