An oversized tote bag made of thick linen canvas.

A size that is hard to find. When you want to put a lot of things in, or when you want to carry flat items with a wide area, this bag can carry your luggage securely.

In my work at PINT, I often carry samples and carry small cardboard boxes all together for delivery.

Since I made it in the early days of PINT, it has been used in many work situations, such as stylists packing a lot of clothes and accessories, photographers putting in tripods, and carrying architectural drawings. . Of course, for everyday use. Great for bulky shopping, travel, and outdoor activities.

It has a large capacity and is strong, but it does not have the hardness and weight of ordinary thick canvas, and it is easy to use because it can be folded and rolled. It can be both main and sub, so it is useful in various situations.

The bottom is not sewn together and is made from a long piece of fabric that has been cut into one piece. Although you can't see it, it is more durable and has the image of being wrapped in fabric as it is.

There is one pocket of the same cloth inward.

Above all, the texture of this fabric is unique and the best feature. Originally, it was a special fabric that was born from a special order for a certain business, and it is a thick canvas-like material that is very rare for linen.

Thick 20-count linen threads are twisted together and woven at an ultra-high density. At first glance, it doesn't look like linen, but the thickness of the thread and the density of the fabric are like cotton canvas or canvas, but the feel and texture are different from cotton, and it has a unique high-quality smoothness and texture. It is not dyed, it is the natural color of the flax itself, which is the raw material of linen. The fabric is not softened or pasted, just as it is unloaded from the loom. A single piece of this fabric is used to create a bag with a simple shape using 100% linen fabric without using bias tape.

It is made with simple materials that are durable and easy to care for, making the most of the goodness of the fabric.

At first, it stands on its own due to the tension of the fabric, but especially in the case of a bag, it quickly softens as you use it. It will no longer stand on its own, but it will be able to be rolled up and folded.

If you use it without washing, it will gradually become familiar with the tension. It will be soft, but it has a texture that gives you a sense of tension or core. If you run it through water or wash it, it will become quite soft and the tension will disappear. Please use it as you like.

The maker of this linen fabric is a craftsman who has inherited the tradition of Omi Jofu in the Omi Koto production area in Shiga Prefecture, and now mainly manufactures fabrics for apparel collection brands.

We carefully weave at a speed of 1m to 2m per hour with an old-fashioned shuttle loom.

Compared to the rapier looms that are mainly used today, the production speed is much slower, but the density and texture of the fabric can only be achieved with shuttle looms.

Since linen tends to break when a force is applied to it while it is being woven on a loom, the threads will break during the weaving process, and the threads will be tied one by one by hand as the work progresses.

Weaving with this shuttle loom requires not only skill, but also perseverance and time. Thick and durable threads such as cotton denim and canvas are still woven with shuttle looms, but 100% linen fabrics made with shuttle looms are rare.

This is what is called the shuttle, through which the weft thread is passed through the shuttle loom.

It is made of heavy wood and moves back and forth from side to side to pass the weft threads. Its movement is like a satellite, so it is called a shuttle (satellite). On the other hand, modern rapier looms are designed to fly the weft with an air jet. Even with this difference alone, I think you can imagine the difference in speed.

This loom is used to weave two-ply yarns from 16th to 20th yarns. The smaller the number, the thicker the yarn, and it is thicker than the 25th yarn used for kitchen cloths. Two-ply yarn is a yarn made by twisting two yarns, and it is simply said that the thickness of the yarn is twice that of a single yarn, and the strength increases even more. Threads change from year to year depending on the condition of the raw material flux, and since it is difficult even for spinning factories to produce thick yarns that meet the specifications of this ultra-high density shuttle weave fabric, the same yarns cannot be produced every year. . Over the past few years, we have been making adjustments while checking the quality of the flux. The loom operator who performs the weaving checks the thickness and quality of the thread, adjusts the twist and the density of the fabric weave, and finishes the fabric close to each time.

A zoomed photo of this linen canvas fabric.

You can see that the thread is tightly woven. A fabric that seeks strength by combining it with the specifications of the thread. It's just the last minute weaving, using a shuttle loom to weave as high a density as possible.

If you look at the threads one by one, you can see that the threads are straight and beautiful. The work of the process of making yarn called spinning is reflected here. If the thickness of the thread is uneven, it will not be possible to weave at this high density, so it is necessary that the quality of the entire process, from thread to weaving, is uniform.

Linen is a material that is strong enough to be used for a long time and has a rich expressiveness that changes over time. In particular, this ultra-thick fabric is more durable, so I hope you can enjoy the changes that gradually grow while using it for a long time.

Since the fabric is not processed at all, it will shrink when it is washed with water or washed. After washing, it will be 3-5% smaller.


[Handling and care]
The fabric is not processed, so it can be washed with water and

Please note that using a dryer, bleaching agent, fabric softener, or fluorescent whitening agent during washing may greatly change the texture of the fabric.

When ironing, it is recommended to use a medium or lower heat setting instead of a high setting. When setting the high temperature, apply a pressing cloth.
