Handmade in the shop of Shoichi Watanabe* in Tokyo, these beautiful traditional style handlebar bags are constructed with heavy duty water repelent Japanese cotton canvas with vegetable dyed leather edging and attachments. The workmanship is superbon par with anything else available.
Note that the side pockets are flush with the sides to improve aerodynamics. The top map pocket can be snapped off if you aren't using it. It can also be rotated around so it sits over the stem behind the rest of the bag making it easier to read the map.
Canvas duck is inherently waterproof. When wet, the fibers expand so that water cannot penetrate the bag; contents will remain dry without need for a coating. Leather trim is natural and will darken with use.
The pictured bag is just one example. Call us to discuss custom orders.
