ruusette : tatamiberi tote



Exactingly constructed, Ruusette's bags and pouches reimagine tatamiberi, a woven tape used to protect and enhance the edges of Japanese tatami mats. The clever use of this humble material lends practicality to Ruusette's designs, which amplify its utility and texture. Designed with your comfort in mind, these minimally detailed pieces make ideal travelling companions; lightweight, durable and adventure friendly.

The clean, square shape and flat profile of this tote make it a super functional option for crossbody wear without adding bulk. Vertical panels of fabric are meticulously sewn giving reinforcement to the structure and a minimal design detail. With one inner pocket and a strong silver snap closure at the top, the bag is unlined, with both an adjustable long leather strap and short handles.
