I’ve got a soft spot for cute bags and probably own one for every occasion. These days I find myself reaching for my tote bag (with kitten print ^_^) often, as it’s so easy to carry around. With this in mind I’ve made a selection of bags that are both kawaii and practical. I hope you’ll see something to your liking!
This fluffy rabbit bag will hold your essentials and you could even use it as a power-nap pillow ;)
I’m a fan of the Osumashi Poo-chan collection at Tokyo Otaku Mode and really like their cute cat bag. It will hold a good amount of items, but you can also check out the backpacks section if you are looking for something roomier.
How sweet is this Neko Atsume bag and pouch set? The bag can hold a notebook and the small pouch fits into the head-shaped front pocket! You can order it using AmazonGlobal.
Modes4u offers a nice selection of kawaii bags, including this Sumikko Gurashi handbag. It’s a smaller bag with some tiny inner-and outer pockets. You could use it to bring your lunch or other essentials with you, oh and it’s on sale right now (^_^).
In Japan you can buy magazines/mooks that come with a bag. These bags are often made in collaboration with high-end (fashion) brands at an affordable price. The bag books, such as this bright bag set from Grand Ground, are available at CD Japan.
One of the toughest things about running SCK is all the cute products I see that I want to buy! Yozo Craft have been one of our oldest sponsors and looking through their site for things to feature ended up with me making my own purchase. Here’s a look at what I bought.
This pretty notebook is what pushed me into ordering as I haven’t seen it anywhere else. The muted colours, mountain and hydrangeas reminded me so strongly of my most recent Japan trip and I thought it would be perfect for planning out my next Japan book and future trips. Even cooler, it’s bound with string and includes both white and black paper so I can also use my metallic paints. There are 4 notebooks in this series and I kind of wish I’d got the others too as they’re only $4.99 each.
Since I was ordering, I also got a couple of Mindwave sticker packs that were on my wishlist. Carrying on the Japan theme is this Mt Fuji set that has a textured washi style finish. There’s a whole series of them with lucky cats, Buddhas, onigiri, sushi and more, but I was very drawn to the worried looking Fujis. You get 50 stickers in ten designs and the packaging is really cute too.
And who can resist Mr Cheese! He’s a slice of American cheese with a bit of a Gudetama influence, lazily flopping over bread and burgers or snoozing inside gratins and cheesecake. All the designs are hilarious and you get 70 stickers so I can share some of the extras.
Overall, I was pleased with my order. Shipping is quite slow, but affordable, and everything arrived in perfect condition. Yozo Craft have a huge range of stationery, stickers, washi tape, craft supplies and zakka so I’m sure I’ll be ordering again.
(While Yozo Craft currently advertise on SCK, this is not a sponsored post and products were purchased with my own money. All photos are my own.)
