I’ve finally found some images to share of one of my all time favourite mass market bag brands Kinoshohampu. They have a number of very well appointed stores here in Taiwan and I’ve always enjoyed the design of their bags and the supporting design of their stores and DM. Unfortunately most of the product they sell to the Taiwan market are for the female buyer so I haven’t added one to my collection.
The canvas bag above is a recent addition to their catalogue with a new cushioned inner bag to use to carry a smallish laptop. This backpack features leather trim, adjustable straps, back zip pocket, velcro under the flap and a beautiful understated design. All the Kinoshohampu bags I have seen have been extremely well made.
