Aika Felt Works Bag is also great to carry other everyday essentials like your phone, wallet and and a notebook (including MIDORI Traveler's Notebook!!), it's a great bag to carry as a sidekick to your adventure. It also work as well as a "bag in the bag" since it folds flat making it easy to store when not being used. We also LOVE the design story behind the
Aika Felt Works Bag... a true design collaboration between one of Aika's customer (who happened to be also our lovely customer) and Aika herself. You can read more about their design process which included 40+ email exchange as well as multiple prototypes using various medium. Because of its smart design, it stands itself nicely on the ground when the bottom is unfolded so that the inside contents don't spill out unexpectedly. Its handle is long enough to loop around your arm. (but not long enough to carry over your shoulder).
The material as industrial felt is highlighted to its best through its design and the vision of a designer Aika Urata and her background in art and industrial design really makes this bag extra special. When you pick up the Aika Felt Works Bag, you can see the clean and simple design of Aika Felt Works meeting an everyday functionality.
