Bamboo is a grass plant with a hard hollow stem. It is very light, strong and easy to work with. This bag is made with thin sticks of braided bamboo. As it is only 0.2mm thick, it is much lighter than you would imagine. You will enjoy its natural gloss (urushi coating), and the way its color changes gradually over time, just like leather.
