Kazumi Takigawa's original line of dyed and waxed canvas bags took their inspiration from the plain brown paper bag. Wanting to mimic the look of ordinary brown paper bag while creating something re-usable and long lasting Takigawa's experiments led her to a process that includes traditional techniques using tea and coffee as dyes.

Takigawa has expanded the line up to include these charcoal grey toned bags dyed with tea and iron and finished with her usual wax treatment. Please note the tone of the grey bags can vary from a cold grey to warmer brown tinged grey.

The bags develop white lines in the folds and creases from the dried wax. This can be appreciated as part of the character of the bags or the white areas can be removed by applying heat over the areas with a blow dryer.
