Classiky - Shion Sugawara Embroidered Lunch Bag
This neat little cloth tote bag is a Japanese lunch bag*.
Made by the artist Shion Sugawara, she uses a sewing machine to create a thread embroidered illustration. She runs the machine back and forth to create an illustrated effect not achieved on industrial automated embroidery machines.
The fine linework made of threads has created four distinct cat characters - Tama, Hana, Shime and Kome. It's hard to decide who you should share your lunchtime with. The bags are made of 100% sennokoto linen. Made in Wakayama, Japan.
The lunch bag and matching cloth are also sold as a set.
The bag 29.5 cm width x 18.5cm high x 12cm wide at the base of the bag.
The handle is 30.5cm long.
* It's typical in Japan to take your lunch to work, often a bento box, wrapped in your tenugui or furoshiki cloth, or in a small tote. The designs can be a smart accessory in their own right.
