Fun Bag

It is fun, it does stretch and shrink back to its small starting size.


Really handy

Seems mom's are always the carrier of everything. Extra sweatshirts, car keys, favorite stuffed animal. "Here mom can you hold this". This bag solves the problem, I can put four light weight jackets and still have room. Great idea! Thanks.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.
