Despite all its technical advancements and modern marvels, Japan is still a nation rooted in traditions. The best example of this are the festivities that mark the passing of a season. During the height of the Spring season, there is hanami (èŠ±è¦‹), or cherry blossoms viewing. And for the upcoming Summer months, there is hanabi (èŠ±ç«), or fireworks display. Literally means “flower-fire”, hanabi events are usually put on as part of the Summer festivals, taking place in townships all over Japan.
After a year of conception and planning, Bå° YOSHIDA (B JIRUSHI YOSHIDA) – the collaborative venture between Japanese retailer BEAMS and YOSHIDA KABAN (manufacture of PORTER bags), previewed the Hanabi Tote, a special collection for firework viewing this Summer. Along with a special Bå° YOSHIDA PORTER tote, made of clear vinyl, is a beautifully printed towel, with the evening scenery of firework display. Also included is an unique fan. Produced by hand and based on methods passed down from the Edo (æ±Ÿæˆ¸) period, some 400 years ago. Each fan went through a rigorous 21 steps to produce, a process that took 6 months!
This special offering is only available through Bå° YOSHIDA (B JIRUSHI YOSHIDA)
