Minimalist lifestyles with minimal essentials have been prevalent in recent years, but in order to realize such a lifestyle, the good ones that can be used for a long time are necessary. I will introduce the recommended the tips to choose a good bag and recommended Japanese bag brands at this time.

How to Select Good Durable Bag?

What kind of points should be checked in order to find a good durable bag that is likely to be used for a long time? I asked four checkpoints to the person in charge of Kiwada CO.,LTD, a long-established bag brand with a history of about 200 years since the foundation!


When it comes to the long-lasting material is a genuine leather bag. Since it will age as you use it, it will become something you love or cannot part with it in terms of usability. Synthetic leather and nylon materials are superior to genuine leather in terms of lightness and ease of care, but many will get dirty due to aging.

However, the progress of post-processing (water-repellent and antifouling processing, etc.) of chemical processing technology and nylon in recent years is so impressive, there are also products of durability and texture can not defeat real leather.
If the rough method of care and storage for the leather bag will make troubles as mold and traces of water get stained. So, the each material of real leather and chemical products have merits and demerits.

2.Parts Your Hands Touch

Handle parts and zipper pulls are damaged within about one year unless the durable material is used. As a material, he thinks that the ones of metal and genuine leather are excellent in terms of durability. On the contrary, synthetic leather (PVC, PU) are excellent in the terms of cost, but it inferior in durability because deterioration of synthetic leather progresses due to hand oil and dirt.

3.Elaborate sewing

It would be recommended that the sewing thread is properly processed (it is cut so as not to jump out and burn the end of the thread). If the sewing is rough, the hole will appear or the shape of the bag will progress.

4.Metal parts

Using solid metal parts is a important point. For example, it is highly likely that the products with metal parts made by bending a thin wire are made with cost priority, so he would not recommend that so much. That is often hidden well, so even if it seems luxury, there are the cases which the parts is weak. Thus, he would recommend to check well.

The fasteners are famous for YKK, but those of the unknown manufacturers' are not so slippery and sometimes the quality is not stable. Since the smoothness of opening and closing is important for everyday use, he would recommend to select those with no stress which can use them comfortably.
