A brilliant bag idea

The design of this bag is genius. It's become my new shopping bag because it takes almost no room to carry but expands to hold so much. It's pretty too, and seems to be very sturdy.More > < Less

Keep in my purse when out and about. Saves using a plastic bag.

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.
