About our products

Where can I try the product?

There is only one shop and it is located in Kyoto, Japan.

Where do you make the products?

Our products are produced in our workshop in Kyoto, Japan. Our workshop is nearby our shop. 

What material do you use?

Our products are made of cotton or linen canvas. Canvas is thick cloth weighing over eight ounces (228 grams) per one square meter. Canvases of different thicknesses are used for different purposes.

Are your bags waterproofed?

Yes, almost all of our items have been waterproofed.

What is the difference among the three labels?

We have three lines of products with each having a different brand name label. The Shinzaburo Hanpu label is for our plain, unprinted cotton bags; the Shinzaburo Kaban label is used for our linen as well as some cotton canvas products which have been printed with our original patterns; the Ichizawa Hanpu label is used for original products which have been specially made for craftspeople.

Can I have my bag customized?

We do not offer any customization options such as embroidered names and initials for purchases made through our online shop.

How do I wash the bag?

Use a clothes brush to brush off dirt and debris; almost all of our items have been waterproofed. Since washing reduces water resistance and causes colors to fade, it is highly recommended that products not be washed for as long as feasible. Do not dry-clean or machine wash.
