I love my new expandable Shibori bag. I've received many compliments on it's gorgeous jewel color. I've had expandable string bags before, but they don't come close to this beautiful bag. It can carry an amazing quantity of things. I've used it as a purse, as a tote bag for many different kinds of things. What an awesome find! I highly recommend this bag. It is a wonderful gift.More > < Less

I have only used it once but it was great. Returned to shape after items removed. Very lightweight. Opening is a little small which makes it hard to put things in.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.
