CAYA Two-Tone Miyuki Bag
$ 13.00 USD
The CAYA Two-Tone Miyuku Bag is an example of what's known as an azumabukuro, a traditional Japanese bag once associated with Eastern Japan ("azuma" means "east"). This version uses kaya netting to form a strong yet light take on a centuries-old craft. Simply tie the ends of the fabric together to create a useful bag with an organic, homemade feel, perfect for wrapping a lunch or some fresh fruit from the farmer's market.

The CAYA line of bags and kitchenware takes its name from the Japanese word kaya, a term for the material in mosquito netting. As the use of these nets fell out of favor in Japan, kaya found new life in a wide variety of home goods, thanks to its unique texture, its impressive durability, and the ease with which it can be cleaned and maintained. All CAYA products are made in Nara, the traditional home of kaya craftworks.
