For this LastFrame Ichimatsu Market Bag, a design with a cult following, designer Takanohiro Okude combines traditional Japanese craftsmanship with modern design. Produced in his hometown of Ishikawa, Japan—which has a 120-year history of weaving kimono fabric—each synthetic-yarn bag is made on a complex knitting machine that’s unique to the mills Okude works with. “Ichimatsu” is the Japanese word for “checkered,” a specific pattern that originates from the Kabuki theater costumes of the Edo period. The LastFrame Ichimatsu Market Bag is sturdy yet springy: it keeps its shape, thanks to the tight knit, and has a stretchy, ribbed texture, thanks to the custom-twisted polyester yarn. The bag can be worn crossbody for easy hands-free wear. It measures 15.35 x 7.5"w with a 39”l strap.
