My heart was racing really fast when I saw the bags designed by Shinzi Katoh, who is Japan’s best known Zakka artist and designer. And I kept chanting OMG OMG as I was browsing through the online catalog. I must have one of these!!!
The site is in a combination of Japanese and English so it’s possible to navigate and understand the content. But for those who are lost, fret not! OMG must have been listening to me because I found the Shinzi Katoh UK website which sells these and ships internationally! The only thing is that they do not carry the full range as yet. Still, if you live in UK, count yourself super lucky because you have easy access to the range of lovely small totes, round totes, large totes and also vinyl totes.
Zakka, by the way, is the term for everything and anything that spruces up your home, life and outlook according to International Herald Tribune.
