Simple but fashionable, leather bags made by Enśe in Kyoto
Not far from Nishiki Market, a 5-minute walk from subway Karasuma Oike Station, there is a shop called Enśe Kyoto that sells leather bags made from high-quality leather by artisans and designers working together. The leather they use is made in the Hyogo Prefecture, in a city called Himeji, in a factory which has been making leather for over hundred years, so right from the moment you first see the bags, you’ll know them from the quality of the leather. Because the leather is of great quality, the bags last long. These bags are great for every occasion, since even though they have a simple elegance to them, they’re also very useful, and are a great fit for commuting, travel, and dates. Enśe Kyoto also sells elegant Japanese jewelry like earrings, necklaces, and wedding rings, which are all very popular among fashion-conscious women. If you’re looking for a great leather bag, then be sure to keep Enśe in your mind.

This black oiled leather bag is the most classic bag at Enśe. One of Enśe’s specialties is their bags’ handles, which are joined to the bag in a special way so that they won’t drop down when you put the bag down but stay upright. So this bag is easy to pick up again; all thanks to the great quality of the leather. There are three different color variations (black, navy, and white) and three sizes, so you can pick the combination you like the best.
