So my latest Map Bag is here! I decided to make this one a bit more luxurious. It is an ITMB map of Tokyo with Tokyo station, Marunouchi, Ginza, Shinbashi and other great landmarks visible. The fabric is a yummy lavender silk. The color of the bag matches the artwork on the map with soft purple, pink and yellows.
The exterior pocket is lined and accented with grey dupioni silk and custom piping. The interior of this bag is what really makes it special. I used a vintage kimono fabric. It is a cream colored background with Samurai Warriors "on parade". They look like little chubby sumo wrestlers! I used a nickel magnetic closure on the inside and attached 16" padded handles to this wristlet.
