Zurich-based bag manufacturing company FREITAG has launched a new store in Kyoto Japan, located close to the ancient Nishiki market and the metropolitan Nakagyo-ku pedestrian precinct.


The new 80-sq.m store is modelled entirely on the industrial-style logistics warehouses at the company’s headquarters in Zurich. This is something visitors can feel, smell and experience for themselves. Because, among other things, the store has its own workshop where they can fulfil their DIY ambitions and produce their own unique miniatures from tarp offcuts.

The premises stock around 1,100 recycled, one-off bags. And just so visitors to the Kyoto store never forget the origin of every unique specimen, a highway-life-size mural of a truck dominates the outside of the newly opened shop.

400-1 Izutsuyacho, Nakagyo-ku, Kyoto-shi, 604-8113
