Description

Making use of Japan’s traditional techniques of armor crafting, Miyake produces unique bags that integrate Japanese culture into modern everyday life. They especially work to answer the demand of customers with high fashion sense and a deep interest in Japanese culture.

History

Since 1967 Miyake's principle occupation is the manufacturing of Kyoto Dolls. For around 50 years they have continued to craft practice their craft. Yet, due to the influence of the declining birth rate the market for Kyoto dolls shrank. It was then in October 2009 when the "Samurai Armor Bag" project would start with one idea: Wouldn’t it be great if we could apply the techniques of armor crafting to the manufacturing of notebook cases? For the sake of the survival of the industry as well as the preservation of traditional techniques, the process of realizing the production of the "Samurai Armor Bags" started. But there were a lot of issues that needed to be solved.
In 2015 Miyake was officially recognized as a certificated merchant by the City of Kyoto during the “Brands from Kyoto for the International Market Project” event. Receiving support ever since he finally succeeded in producing the "Samurai Armor Bag".
