Ooe Yofukuten made their name on making the best pair of jeans in the world in their two-person workshop in Ichinomiya, Japan. Now, they've turned their attention to making vintage-style bags as well, and the results are outstanding.
A simple one-piece newspaper shoulder bag, handmade from a custom fabric and inspired by archival vintage bags. The fabric is a reproduction Alberton U.S. 12oz selvedge Army Duck, in an undyed natural color. The bag features the fabric details stamped on the outside, and a small Ooe tag sewn onto the rear. Inside, it's just one opening to throw your stuff into before slinging the bag over your shoulder. Enjoy responsibly.
This fabric is unsanforized, and will shrink when washed. Wash cold, hang dry for minimal shrinkage.
