A Japanese accessory shop known throughout the country
Since its foundation in 1865, Izawaya has been an essential shop specializing in traditional Japanese accessories for local geiko, maiko and actors performing at the Minamiza Theatre in Kyoto. From elegant formal bags to casual ones for daily use, as well as pretty pouches and handkerchiefs with traditional Japanese patterns, Izawaya is like a jewel box of all kinds of accessories for classical Japanese attire.
A particularly popular item is their signature item, the Aoi Bag, using the fine fabric of Nishijin woven textiles and Kyo Yuzen dyed fabrics. Every detail is made to enhance a users’ beautiful figure, from the length and thinness of the handle, for example. A bag with a pattern of small chrysanthemums embroidered with gold and silver yarn on a white base has a very elegant touch while some bags have impressively vivid colors. Choose one from their variety of elegant and graceful bag options to complete your special Japanese attire. Customized orders (choosing fabrics) is also accepted.
