Cottage Bag by Aika Felt Works is designed to carry your essentials from home to your cottage... making the process of packing and unpacking easy as well as beautiful. It was designed by a Japanese designer Aika Urata who resides in Finland. Her inspiration for the Cottage Bag came from a scene of packing for a trip to a family cottage. The wide handles are easy to grab with or without gloves (super helpful if you have cold winter!) and the bag can hold just about anything you might need for an weekend away. We also love storing toys in our living room, taking Cottage Bag to Palm Springs (as far as it can get from an winter cottage in Finland), organizing magazines, and carrying a Cottage Bag full of clean clothes from our laundry room to bedroom. Because of its design and industrial felt as material, Cottage Bag does not lose its shape or a standing stunt even when you put things with odd shapes. The upper portion of the bag (including handles) is double layered and sewn together to strengthen around the handling holes. When you pick up the Cottage Bag, you can see the clean and simple design of Aika Felt Works meeting an everyday functionality.
Cottage Bag was designed with much love and care by Aika in her studio Aika Felt Works. Press-cutting of felt is done by Finnish company according to Aika's design, and all other works are done by in Aika Felt studio in Rovaniemi, Finland.

Care Instruction from Aika Felt Works:
Spot clean, hand-wash only in sopy warm water (under 30ºC). Not machine washable. (The felt will shrink and you'll have a smaller bag.)
