Coal Vertical Bag

  • Sale
  • Regular price $110.00

The Coal Vertical Bag designed by Reiko Sudo for NUNO is made with polyester monofilament—commonly used as fishing line—which has a hard, stiff structure that is usually considered a defect in cloth. NUNO’s Coal is finished with an alkaline reducing process that softens the surface of the fabric. This process characteristically allows the material to bend and crumple naturally, and creates a smooth, lacquer-like surface. This new version is treated with a waterproof coating to lock the threads in place, eliminating the need for backing when this tough textile is used as upholstery.

NUNO—which simply means “cloth” in Japanese—is headed by world-renowned textile designer Reiko Sudo who launched the company more than 35 years ago with textile icon Jun’ichi Arai. NUNO seamlessly networks the independent spinners, dyers, and mills that still survive in villages throughout Japan. Combining traditional weaving technologies, with state-of-the-art materials and manufacturing technologies, the special production processes behind each and every one of NUNO’s unique designs rely heavily on the expertise of Japan’s highly-skilled crafts persons and their centuries of accumulated experience.
