Art is the journey of a free soul. And this small tote bag by Anekke Shōen is a walk through the most artistic Japan.


This original small bag with two handles will delight you with its original oval shape. It features a zip closure, inner lining and pockets. When it comes to carrying it, you choose how you want to carry it every day, as you can use it with its two handles, or hang it up with its shoulder strap with chain detail at one end.


Anekke Shōen is a tribute to the Japanese painter Uemura Shōen. This artist is considered the mother of Japanese women artists, as she managed to make painting a female profession at a time when women were not allowed to paint professionally. Therefore, this collection is an ode to art, which sets us free and allows us to portray and create a unique vision of the world.


Anekke is in a painting studio, painting a circle around herself. This stroke is a Japanese artistic practice called "ensō", in which the spirit connects with the brushstrokes to be able to convey emotions. It is also a metaphor for that magical moment when inspiration flows, illuminating the artist so that he or she can create.


It is a collection full of unique details, with shiny touches, personalised pins, handles and patches and a message in Japanese that will remind you every day how important it is to find your "ikigai" (your reason for being).
