KURA Exhibition: GOOD GOODS —SOLID BAG

On September 1st (Sat), ISSEY MIYAKE opened a new store “GOOD GOODS ISSEY MIYAKE” in Daikanyama, Tokyo that selects and carries only “good goods”. From among these “good goods” KURA exhibition presents SOLID BAG by me ISSEY MIYAKE.

The bag is smooth in texture, sturdy enough to hold its form when expanded, and dyed a variety of bright and refined colors. These features are made possible by a unique making process, where the bag is knitted out of a special thin yarn, treated to shrink to a quarter of its original size, and then dyed to finish. This process requires a fair amount of time and work so only a limited number can be produced per day.

This exhibition presents an installation inspired by SOLID BAG, along with behind-the-scenes film footage of the bag’s careful and thorough making process. As this exhibition explores why “good goods” are “good goods”, it shares the making of SOLID BAG and the fascination it holds with the audience.
