Great bag


The expandable Shibori bag is great. The ruby color is a little darker than shown online.




I use this bag daily. I can find my phone in it because it lights up on the side. Nothing falls out of it when I set it down.it fits my iPad, chunky wallet, sunglasses, candy and work phone without hurting my shoulders. Mouth of bag is small but does open enough for my iPad without difficulty. Glad I got it.More > < Less

About Ando

Transformer Tote

These Japanese bags go from pocket-sized to tote-sized on command, and they look beautiful while they’re at it.

Shibori Bags’ elaborate, scrunchy finish stretches and morphs into an expandable grocery bag, a wristlet for your essentials, or an ad-hoc pouch for last-minute errands.

Each bag is actually handmade. The cloth is tightly bound around penny-sized rings, washed, then steamed to get those disk-like wrinkles. The results are intriguing, and almost hypnotic to watch crunch and expand.

And because Shibori Bags are so light and petite, you can always keep them handy. Stash one in your glove compartment or pocket. It’s even inconspicuous enough to carry inside your main purse.

Embrace wrinkles and watch this bag stretch to fit your need.
