Sasicco-woven Mikawa-momen cotton fabric is a traditional product of the Mikawa region in Aichi Prefecture of Japan.
With its patterned bumpy surface, the fabric boasts outstanding durability, non-flammability, heat retaining properties and moisture absorbency, and has been made into dogi (uniforms worn in martial arts such as judo), since olden times. As is evident from the fact that it has long been used for dogi which are worn directly on the skin, this fabric is soft to the touch, yet strong and resistant to friction and becomes more comfortable in texture over time. These qualities make this fabric also ideal for bags. Created carefully by skilled artisans who make effective use of the fabric’s properties, Sasicco bags have enjoyed great popularity in Japan and abroad, since they were launched onto the market.
This bag is made using the Mikawa cotton used for judo clothing and the sashiko weaving technology cultivated in judo clothing.
This OBI tote uses a judo belt for the handle of the bag. The inside pocket has a zipper, so you can store small items with confidence.
It is a convenient item that can be used by both men and women with a simple design.
