The concept of KEESE is "things that can be shared". Headed by bag and wallet maker Kisei Nitta, KEESE's bags are minimal, universal designs that can be used by all.

Using leather, canvas, and vintage fabrics, each piece is made with the approach of creating a bag that can be cherished, used daily, and passed down to the next generation to also enjoy and use in a functional manner.

We were drawn to not only the handcrafted techniques present but also their commitment to modernising handicraft and bringing it forward while still referencing the past.
