This is the bag I place in my regular bag when I go shopping because it has adorable ways of expanding! It takes up a small place in my bag and I can use it to shop and add items. It is so convienient.


Absolutely Love

I do not like carrying a purse and when I no longer worked I only used a passport wallet.
I have looked at this repeatedly for awhile and decided to get it. I love this gets bigger when I need it and then small again. Everyone wants to know where to get it.Great purchase!


Unique and Useful!

I have purchased many Shibori bags to give as birthday gifts for friends. Everyone seems to love to fact that they are compact, expandable and very attractive. Now I want one for myself!


This is just TOO easy :D

What a handy little bag to have around! In fact, I bought 2 and so happy that I did. I keep one in the glove compartment in the car "just in case", and the other goes with me when I know I'm going to need the perfect spot for those great things we all buy on impulse or planned -- such as those super fun arts and crafts festivals! It starts off folded and in my own purse, and then my own purse ends up inside of this terrific Shibori along with my purchases, and whether you carry it by hand or over your shoulder, it's a life-saver. Did I mention cute? It is, and it's as light as air. I love it!

I used it today.In my purse, it was small enough to fit into my fist. I put 2 large boxes and a small box in it, and it expanded to fit. I love it!


Love these bags

I have several and I always receive compliments when I wear them. I've used them both as a lightweight purse and as a shopping bag.


Amazing Bag

When I first pulled it of the bag I wa dismayed. But once I used it I was extremely happy with the bag. I've received numerous compliments on it and people want to know where I got it. It gets very large and when emptied goes back to original size.


Cute and Unusual!

I gave a few of these as gifts. Everyone loved them! They opened them and said how cute they were. Then when they found they expanded and could hold 25 pounds...they were amazed! I got red, blue and black, but don't know which was the favorite.


Unique use

I purchased this for my Stepmom as they “winter” in Ca and through it would be a great thing for them to carry round to go to the grocery store since they charge you now for bags there. She found a different use for it and the fact that it’s breathable she can put her oxygen that is portable and it to make it easier.


Great bag

This bag is great. It expands so that one could even pack enough for an overnight. Well, I can. Pack pjs, toiletries. Perfect. Also just right for any shopping.

The little bag that’s ready for big jobs.

Clever Carry

Ando expandable bags are handmade in Japan for all you need to carry the day. They start off pocket-sized so they're easy to have on hand, then they expand to tote-sized in seconds. This is all thanks to the careful Japanese Shibori technique. The cloth is tightly bound around penny-sized rings, washed, then steamed to get those disk-like wrinkles and their versatile stretch. When you're done, the bags scrunch back down and keep their shape for next time.
