As a leather bag that can accommodate A4-sized documents and a 13-inch laptop, it is probably the world's lightest at just 100g!
Despite that, it boasts remarkable strength, capable of carrying up to 14kg without showing signs of strain.
To achieve lightness, some products use common cowhide that is thinly shaved, but this approach has a drawback as it reduces the amount of the crucial "fibers" responsible for the leather's strength. (If you shave it down to half, the fiber amount is also reduced by half; if you shave it down to 1/3, the fiber amount becomes 1/3.)
However, Ethiopian sheepskin, known for its natural thinness, lightness, and durability, doesn't have this concern.
Cowhide shaved down to 1/3 of its thickness:
Furthermore, a bag with a single-piece construction, without using lining or any seams, allows both the front and back sides of the material to be visible.
We've also received feedback from customers such as:
"It's lightweight and durable, and it doesn't get damaged even if I handle it roughly."
"It has a higher capacity than it looks, and it still looks good when packed full."
"The design is simple and stylish, making it suitable for work."
Many customers have mentioned using it as a commuter bag as well.
It's great to see how customers are finding creative and versatile ways to use the bag. We got to take some photos of customers enjoying their Cocoon bags looking stylish with them.
In my recent appearance on the BS Tele East program "& Start-up", I received lots of enthusiastic comments from the hosts:
"This is so lightweight!" (Non-Style's Inoue)
"I really want this! It feels amazing!" (Yuko-san)
"It's light, it's light, it's light, it's light, it's light, it's light, it's light!"
"Isn't this lighter than a supermarket plastic bag?" (Non-Style's Ishida)
It's wonderful to see such positive reactions from the show's hosts, and it's clear that the Cocoon bag made quite an impression on them. It was also heartwarming to hear about your interaction with Ishida-san and how he appreciated the product.
