KAZUMI TAKIGAWA

 

Kazumi Takigawa's line of dyed and waxed canvas bags take their inspiration from the plain brown craft paper bag. Emulating the look of an ordinary brown paper bag while creating something re-usable and long-lasting, Takigawa's experiments led her to a process that includes a traditional dyeing technique and the use of tea and coffee as dyes. She produces each bag by hand in a variety of shapes and sizes.
