Love it

Love it and color is very pretty. It is light weight and not heavy when used.


A Success!

I love my new expandable Shibori bag. I've received many compliments on it's gorgeous jewel color. I've had expandable string bags before, but they don't come close to this beautiful bag. It can carry an amazing quantity of things. I've used it as a purse, as a tote bag for many different kinds of things. What an awesome find! I highly recommend this bag. It is a wonderful gift.

I have only used it once but it was great. Returned to shape after items removed. Very lightweight. Opening is a little small which makes it hard to put things in.


Handy shopping bag

I bought 2 of these. One for my daughter. It is great to have something so compa:t that it fits in your purse, yet it can be brought out to carry purchases

I like it!

My only criticism is that it expands with the addition of the lightest item. I wish it were made with a material that was stiffer so that the small size could be used effectively.


Cute bag

I like the style of this bag and the quality appears to be good, but I was disappointed in the size. It is quite small when empty. The size of a travel purse, which is exactly the reason I bought it. However, it is a lot smaller than what appears on the picture with the model. When stretched to its capacity,the "flowers" disappear, not like pictured. It would probably hold as much as a small plastic bag from the grocery store. Nice concept but rather disappointing!


Does not seem to stretch as far as picture

Was planning to use as a vegetable bag for farmers market but is not big enough. I will give away as a gift.


Not what I expected. Extremely small.

This item is not as pictured. It is so small it is basically useless. Wish I could return :( as I will probably never use.

Didn't expand as much as I'd hoped for.

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.
