All Funagata bags are dyed with organic and natural dyes including coffee, tea, alum mordant, oolong and iron mordant. Each bag is then hand-finished with a natural beeswax coating to protect the dyed treatment. My concept is to reproduce something that resembles a simple craft paper bag that uses sustainable production methods and ethical, long-lasting durable materials. -- Kazumi Takagawa, founder
Designed and produced by Tama Art University Sculpture graduate Kazumi Takigawa in 2012, Funagata crafts wax-finished canvas craft bags. The concept originates from the simple brown paper bag; taking its inherent aesthetic qualities and combining it with a unique design and production process resulting in a durable and unique bag based on longevity. The brand philosophy is underpinned by sustainability; hand-crafting canvas bags which are naturally dyed using tea, oolong, coffee and iron as a mordant in Takigawa’s Japan-based atelier. Combining two types of wax finish, each bag balances stiffness and suppleness and are realised in natural brown and charcoal shades.
