Kapital’s Kountry sub-label takes inspiration is highly sought after thanks to the labels one-off M.O. from Korean mending techniques with it’s latest Denim Patch Work Tote Bag. Combining the centuries-old technique of Japanese boro, which uses discarded fabric to repair and patch damaged fabric, with the Korean pojagi technique of piecing together patches of scraps, Kountry has taken old Japanese calico and indigo-dyed cloth, and turned them into a one of a kind tote bag that can likely hold everything that you’ll need for a day’s work.
The bag features a wide gusseted design, distressed metal button closure, and interior indigo-dyed cloth pocket. Utilizing various hemp-blend fabric scraps cut into a classic tote bag design, it’s a beautiful representation of upcycled goodness.
Available for $338 at Blue in Green.
