What the producers are particular about

What is the feature of the wooden bag of Umaji village?


It is that this bag has beautiful wood grain. The more you use it , the more wood grain's taste increases. In addition, it is light and durable!
The material is good quality Japanese cedar "Yanasesugi"produced in Umaji village, Kochi prefecture that has been familiar as good building materials from ancient times. It is thinly sliced and piled up in layers to create the lightness and the durability.
It is possible to use long, the beautiful texture of natural wood will get more tasteful.
In events, sometimes users come to show us their beautifully aged bag that have been used for a long time. I feel glad at such time.

In addition, so as to be a handy and convenient bag, we thought out the specification. The surface treatment of the water-repellent coat, and natural leather handles, double zippers, inner pockets, and a shoulder belt.
Regardless of season or location, it can be useful.

1% of sales of the thinned wood products are utilized for conservation of forests.



Thinned wood of cedar growing in the forest of Umaji Village, Kochi Prefecture is used for this bag.

In forests that have not been (felling trees at appropriate intervals) thinned trees grow densely and can't get enough sunlight and the growth of the trees become worse and the forest itself will weaken.
If tree thinning isn't be done to forests, forests are weakened rapidly. Due to the decline of forestry in recent years, such thing is increasing in Japan.

In addition, thinning material was not utilized at the past time.
It was thinned only for cleaning mountains and discarded.

In order to save the forests debilitating,, thinning is needed, but fund is needed to do so. Umaji Village accounts for 96% of the forest area, we started a project to commercialize thinned cedar →return a part of its profit to the forest →advance the further thinning and protect the forest.

It is an ideal that the cycle continues forever.

In addition, healthy forests absorb more carbon dioxide and it also lead to reduction of CO2.


What is the hard part of producing?


It is that there was nothing but trying whether creating is feasible or not since no one had ever made bags like these,

Pressing and molding bonding many layers of thinly sliced cedar, in particular putting stitches directly into wood sheet by machine was difficult because there were no data and no example yet.

some trials got along well surprisingly, some was more difficult than expected.
There is only collecting data by trying.

What is the origin of the name of the wooden bag Umaji village "Monacca bag" ?

This is named from MONAKA waffle cake ! Because the form looks like that (laughs).

This explanation seems to be easy to understand not only for Japanese but also for foreigners
.
Leave a message to our customers!
There is no other bag like our Monacca wood bag.
We hope customer enjoy their bag's original change with time
