This bag is perfect! Very well made with a lot attention to detail. It can be used for every day but elegant enough for an evening out. It finds all my essentials - lipstick, keys, pen, credit cards and iphone. I love that it has an outside pocket as well as an outside zippered pocket. The seller, Yoko Ishiro, was a dream to work with. She even went to the effort of having the purse sent to my hotel so that I can use it on vacation. Love, love, love this bag!

I absolutely love this bag! It is my fourth (or fifth?) purchase of aLittlePocketJapan purse. It is a wallet, crossbody and phone holder all in one. All my essentials fit nicely - CCs, a few other cards, car key, house keys, some cash, lip balm, eyedrops, and iPhone 7 Plus with a thin protective case. It comes with a pen holder too. I use it every day as it goes so well with just bout everything. It is lightweight, not bulky looking, and great craftsmanship. I totally recommend this for a nice lightweight purse for your essentials!

When I was looking for a pass case and wallet that I could use more easily when I broke my right arm last year, I saw a friend buy a wallet shoulder bag of sand beige, and I purchased a patisserie pattern by trial, so this time it is a repeat.
To tell the truth, I was worried about whether to choose a patisserie pattern or this cherry pattern for a long time, but I purchased a patisserie pattern because I wanted it at that time, but I couldn't give up after all, so I decided to purchase it as both a trip to Okinawa and my birthday present this time.
The yellow cherries are cute on a gray ground and are very nice. Of course, because it is already patronized, usability is guaranteed. I love it so much that I can't go back to my other wallet any more.
Because ic card case instead of a pass case is attached, I want you to experience the lightness that I can really go out with this one by all means.
By the way, for the event of the paper balloon pattern purchased with here (not handled on this site) is really recommended because it is useful for valuables management while in the hospital.
Because it can also be used for party bags depending on the design, it is a dish that I want you to use only one by all means because how to use it is each.

When my son was a little, he played Little league baseball and mothers needed to take care of them by turns.
I had to move here and there, so I wanted a small bag that I could move quickly with only valuables putting in. However, I could find only casual bags made of nylon, which didn’t suit my regular clothes. I wanted a cute cloth one, then I made a “wallet shoulder bag” for myself.
I made trial products repeatedly, added functions what I and customers wanted and upgraded “wallet shoulder bags”. Finally, I got the current design of a wallet shoulder bag.
I had taken my son to the park near our house everyday until he entered the kindergarten. We transferred for husband’s job to the new area and didn’t know about there at all, but I wished he grew up to be strong and healthy by playing outside. Besides, he was an only child, so I wanted him to get involved in society early.
It was quite hard to play with him with holding diapers, a change of clothes, a water bottle, etc. on backpack.
I thought that “If I had had this wallet shoulder bag at that time, my parenting style would have been more comfortable". Then, I’ve wanted to support mothers who struggle for raise children by themselves everyday, so started to sell wallet shoulder bags on the online shop.
I used a sewing machine in earnest for the first time when I made my son’s kindergarten things.
It was really fun. I was familiar with sewing because my mother worked with using a sewing machine and my grandparents were engaged in “Nishijin weaving” which is a traditional textile produced in the Nishijin district of in Kyoto, Japan.
At a general store, I found and fell in love with a nostalgic fabric named "Feed sack" that unraveled the old American feed bag. I made small bags and pouches, opened a shop at my home and started to sell them. They were popular with mom friends in my son’s kindergarten, however, I had to close the shop because of my husband's job transfer.
After that, I opened the online shop in order to continue my shop wherever I moved to.
The chance that the wallet shoulder bag was born is that my son joined the Little league baseball at the destination of a move.
The feature of the wallet shoulder bag that I make is made of cloth, and light.
In addition, my shop is a specialty shop, so there are various types of wallet shoulder bags, such as cute, chic, cool and gorgeous.
For “Rinzu” series which is made of Kimono fabric, I order the fabrics from my birth place, Kyoto. I’ve been fascinated by the beauty of the fabric’s sheen.
My grandparents were engaged in “Nishijin weaving” which is a traditional textile produced in the Nishijin district of in Kyoto, Japan, that’s why I felt the destiny to encounter with Rinzu fabric.
Rinzu series is my best favorite and I bring it anywhere, therefore, it attracts peoples’ attention. As a result, Rinzu series is the most popular item even though it is an expensive product.
I want people around the world to know the beauty, I registered a Rinzu item first of all when I opened my shop on Etsy.
I had worked hard as a salesperson at a travel agency before my marriage. But I became a full-time housewife after marriage and was pressed by child rearing and housework, so sometimes I felt that I was left behind the public.
However, creating wallet shoulder bags and taking a step to start a business for helping other moms and women have changed the latter half of my life a lot.
Since the establishment in 2012, in addition to the online shop, I have also exhibited at events several times a year, and have been making opportunities to get many people to know the wallet shoulder bags.
Under the circumstance, I have gotten customer feedbacks that "I became positive thanks to a wallet shoulder bag, I also got the courage and took a step".
I am delighted to hear that, and continue to offer information on SNS everyday to help more and more women.
“Make women be more active and smile in lightly going-out style without binding by heavy baggage.”
With this philosophy, I aim to continue as my lifework for a long time.
The minimalist who knows he/ she already has enough is booming now.
Organizing your baggage leads to organizing your thoughts.
Please experience a feeling of release with hands-free and stress-free by a wallet shoulder bag.
Please hold your hands that get free with your loved ones!

I was born in Kyoto and live in Chiba, Japan. We are a family of three, my husband, 18-year-old son and me. I worked at a travel agency in sales before. I’ve got into sewing on a machine since I made kindergarten things for my son. Moreover, at a general store, I found and fell in love with a “feed sack” that is a fabric bag for livestock feed in U.S.A. I made small bags and pouches, etc., and opened a shop at my home. They became popular with mom friends. On occasion of my husband's job transfer, I opened the online shop in order to continue my shop wherever I moved to. I devised a wallet shoulder bag for myself because I had to manage of valuables when taking care of kids in my son’s Little league baseball. The wallet shoulder bag was talked about by people and became popular, then I had the online shop start again as a wallet shoulder bag specialty shop. In addition to the online shop, I exhibit at events several times a year.
