  • Product with ethical values.
Inspired by the revival of vinyl records in this digital age and the music we love, 80's record bags were taken as the design motif. The unique square shape is based on traditional Japanese Origami (the art of paper folding) and Yose-zaiku (marquetry) techniques. Our design includes practical daily-use features that make it easy to store items such as smartphones, tablets and drink bottles. Entirely constructed from folded layers of 100% organic cotton sailcloth, this bag boasts a soft silhouette and deep texture, qualities that petroleum-derived synthetic fibres and leather products lack. Representing ethical luxury, it exclusively utilises the finest cotton textile, advanced natural dyes, and high-quality metal components. The bag, including the metal components are meticulously made in Japan by skilled craftsmanship.
Holds up to approximately 20 vinyl records.

Available to two sizes: 7 inches and 12 inches, and offered in 3 materials / 3 colours.


The finest quality canvas fabric, which brings a pleasant texture unique to cotton, is an ESC original textile created through the excellent craftsmanship of a canvas maker in Shiga Prefecture. This maker has inherited and preserved the traditional Takashima sailcloth quality for generations. Only natural-origin materials, including pigments are used throughout the entire process. Compared to conventional belts made from leather or petroleum-derived materials, this 100% organic cotton belt is an ethical choice for both the human body and environment. It is woven with unbleached yarns to enhance the comfortably rich texture and colour of the high-quality cotton. Additionally, one of the notable features of the cotton canvas is its ability to change in texture over time and with use.

【Natural dyeing】

Our focus was on harnessing the rich colours of traditional Japanese mineral dyeing, an ancient technique believed to enhance the suppleness of the thread, as well as offering insect-repellent and deodorising properties.
The unique iron powder dyeing procedure was meticulously carried out by skilled dyeing artisans at a renowned studio in Tokyo, using upcycled iron powder sourced from shipbuilders in the Hiroshima-prefecture. This mineral dye evokes the authentic colour and texture of iron itself. The natural changes in both the colour and texture are to be enjoyed, much like with indigo-dyed denim garments.

[ Due to the nature of the dye, changes in texture and gradual colour fading are to be expected as a result of friction over time.]


Sliders, hooks, rings, and magnetic buttons are made from brass or aluminum for longevity and recyclability purposes, through meticulous craftsmanships in Japan.

【Metal emblem】

The ESC logo features the brand's iconic elephant by fusing the design elements of a traditional Japanese family crest with contemporary graphic features. The brass badges are forged with expert craftsmanship in a workshop located in downtown Tokyo, a historic production area renowned for creating the finest insignia emblems.

No raw materials of animal or petroleum origin are used in the main materials of this product.

【ATTENTION [Mineral pigment dye] ACS】

This iron powder dyeing is done by hand by dyeing artisans, so there is some unevenness in the colour. Due to the nature of the dye, changes in texture and colour fading due to friction will occur over time. The natural changes in colour and texture are to be enjoyed, similar to indigo-dyed denim garments. Wear and store in dry conditions, as prolonged exposure to moisture and high temperatures may cause discolouration, colour migration and odours. If sand or dirt adheres to the product, remove it with a dry cloth or soft brush. For water-soluble stains, hand wash the soiled area in room temperature water and be sure to dry it in its original shape before use. Never use alkaline agents, bleach, fabric softeners or brighteners.
