Freitag at Ito-ya

Uber-stationery store Ito-ya is holding a celebration of all things Freitag!

Two brothers from Zurich, Daniel and Markus Freitag, were bike-riding designers in 1993 when they began making durable, waterproof bags from recycled truck tarps. Freitag bags are put together entirely from recycled materials, including airbags, seat belts and bicycle inner tubes—no two are the same. Over 400 of the bags will be featured at the Freitag Fair at Ito-ya in Ginza from May 27 to June 5, but you can also custom-build your bag through their website. (Metropolis)
