We made a limited serie of 5 bags made out of a 1920’s Japanese indigo boro kimono. Literally translated as rags or scraps of cloth, the Japanese term boro is also used to describe clothes and household items which have been patched-up and repaired many times. Once clothing was made, it would be maintained throughout the owner’s lifetime, or perhaps even longer. We carefully reworked this beautiful fabrics into a roll top back that can be rolled-up to different heights. It is still closable by the in height adjustable belt.

Please beware, raw indigo fabric is easy to bleed onto lighter materials!!

All Atelier de l’Armée bags are one of a kind, individually numbered and constructed from carefully selected materials. The distinct look of our materials can only be achieved by years of usage, therefore our bags may have stains, small repairs, erros, stamps or other natural wear. This is all part of our philosophy, it is what makes them special. Our bags are made by hand with great care for detail in our small workshop in Amsterdam. They are build to last and strong enough to hold all your belongings
