hobo x Shinzaburo Hanpu Bag Behind The Scenes Look
Japan’s popular hobo label presents a behind the scenes look at the making of their hobo x Shinzaburo Hanpu collaboration bag commemorating the 10th anniversary of hobo’s parent company TNP.Co.,Ltd. The workshop and store where the bags are made was founded in 1905 in Kyoto’s Higashiyama Ward where every stage from production to sales are still run. Every month a craftsman comes to the workshop to check the scissors and takes those that are blunt away for sharpening to ensure the age-old method of manually cutting the canvas with scissors is employed rather than a computer guided cutter. To make sure the bag can be sewn cleanly, craftsmen hammer creases into the canvas and rather than adopting an assembly-line mode of production. The entire manufacturing process is carried out in pairs operating together to make sure each other’s bag is finished.
