Torigoe Woven Bamboo Tote
From the tiny village of Torigoe, this hand-woven basket tote is made from sturdy suzutake, a variety of bamboo native to Japan. Roomy enough to hold picnic essentials and sturdy enough to hold its shape, the Torigoe tote is a beautifully constructed bag that reinvents the rural craft traditions of Japan.
Torigoe bamboo works are made by splitting each stalk of bamboo into quarters and then shaving them into strips. These strips are then knit together in a cross-hatch pattern that gives the baskets a weightless strength. Today the torigoe weaving tradition is upheld by specialist weavers, whose disciplined artistry keeps the craft alive and growingMaterials: bamboo

Chidoriya Pure Camellia Oil
In the Heian period, camellia seeds were used as shampoo ingredients for their natural skin conditioning and balancing properties. Japanese camellias are naturally packed with oleic acids that are extremely compatible with our own skin, sinking deeply into dry skin for profound hydration. Their oil is still used to this day to deeply moisturize skin, hair, and cuticles. Use as a moisturizing oil for hair and skin, or combine with essential oils for an aromatic experience.
