ICHIZAWA SHINZABURO HANPU - Manufacture & Sales of Canvas Bags



My family, my bags

Excuse me for being personal, I had a wedding ceremony exactly two years ago.
We had a great time that was filled with laughter and tears at the ceremony, which we two planned carefully down to the last detail.
At the ceremony, I gave our parents bags, off-white and navy 17C, as a present that would express all the thanks and appreciation for raising us. Besides, I surprised my wife by giving also her a bag, off-white H-04(small), which I made in person, with a few words: “Let’s set up a durable, repairable, and long-lasting family, like bags of Ichizawa Shinzaburo Hanpu.”

I’m glad she is still using the bag now.
In two years, our family got bigger as we had a child. When we go out with our child, we use light-brown 168(large) as a “mother’s” bag. It has enough storage space such that it can hold easily extra clothes and diapers, so the bag is good for us, both are natural worriers. Also, as it has studs on the bottom, it can be placed on the ground directly.
I would like to continue to take good care of my bags and my family, which I will live with for a long time.
