The braided strap ends are fixed with melted honey wax instead of stitching.
Adjustable buckle-on strap: Brass
Body 24.5 x 33.5W
- Wipe with wet cloth, and dry in the shade after removing dust.
- As the bag is made of natural materials, when you store it, lay it flat in a place without direct exposure to sun, and with good air circulation.
Kotomi Akatsuka works as a freelance florist and shop display designer. One day, she thought to herself, “I wish I could find accessories that were more special and looked better on me.” She searched for the perfect items, but couldn’t find the right fit. “Then why don’t I just make it myself?” That’s how she founded matka.
In 2007, she discovered the Ramie material (a grass fiber), and started to make bags and accessories with it. Since then, she went on to organize art shows and workshops around Japan.
