Engineer Shoulder Bag designed and made by The Superior Labor, a Japanese lifestyle brand which makes a perfect utilitarian companion for overnight travel as well as everyday outings. We totally absolutely fell in love with these canvas/leather shoulder bag when we first saw them on the street of Harajyuku in Tokyo. The bag is versatile and durable and ready for small and big adventures... The more you use it, the softer the canvas and leather become. You can watch the quality and craftsmanship that goes into making these bags in the video The Superior Labor created.
The bag comes with two internal pockets for organizing small essentials like your phone and keys. The top closes with a sturdy brass zipper so that your belongings in the bag are safe and secure as you carry your bag. The flap for the top zipper can be completely opened and out of your way so that you could easily carry oversized items.
The natural canvas looks great with a pop of painted colors on the bottom (which not only look amazing visually but also keeps dirt off from the canvas significantly!). I am sure you will find one of their paint options to compliment your unique style. All materials are carefully sourced in Japan and bags are made in The Superior Labor maker's studio in Okayama prefecture where they turned an old elementary school into a unique workshop space. The last photo shows the comparison between new and old (2 years old) shoulder bag and how its leather strap wears in.
