ICHIZAWA SHINZABURO HANPU - Manufacture & Sales of Canvas Bags



My mother

My mother – whenever there was something good to eat like delicious fruit or cakes, she would always give her potion to me and my brother, never taking any for herself.
She is a kind-hearted and caring person who thinks nothing of expending her time and effort doing something for the family and others.

Time has passed and now I find myself a mother of three, two sons and a daughter.
My husband has such a deep respect for my mother that he even says that he would like her to raise our children! The children also adore their grandma. One day when my daughter saw her blue linen canvas bag, she said, “Grandma’s bag is so cool! I want a red one!”

My mother doesn’t spend much on herself. Therefore I often give her a bag from our shop as a gift on her birthday, or for Mother’s Day. I’m so pleased whenever I see her using each bag with loving care. Happiness is walking around the neighborhood in the company of my mother and daughter, each with her own distinctive bag.

This year, my mother will be seventy. In honor of this auspicious day and in heartfelt appreciation of the 40 years she has been my mother, I would like to give her something that would express all the thanks and appreciation that cannot be put into words.
