Fade Friday – Evisu “Bakabon” Denim Bag (6 Years, 3 Washes)

Evisu Japan Raw Denim Tote Bag

Fade Friday - Evisu Japan Denim Tote Bag (6 Years, 3 Washes)

Starting off the year’s Fade Friday specials, this week we bring you a very cool submission in the form of a denim bag. The photos of this bakabon bag, made by Evisu, were sent to us by reader Satoshi Takatsuka.

Note: Do you have any well-worn raw denim that you’d love others to see? Send your photos and details to info@rawrdenim.com

Satoshi tells us that he used this bag regularly for the last 6 years during his days at college in Osaka, Japan. As I’m sure you can tell, it’s seen quite a bit of wear & tear and has required a few repairs over the years.

Needless to say, all of this has contributed to some of the best atari fades we’ve seen in a long time. The colour change in this denim is astounding. Once again, we’d like to thank Satoshi for sharing. ありがとうございました、高塚さん!

    Hmmm… my wife has a whack of decent denim fabric that she was going to make jeans out of. It’s not raw or anything, but it’s nice fabric. Maybe I should bash up a few of these bags for us instead. Thanks for the inspiration!
