About Me

Time to Travel

I desperately love traveling, eating and especially shopping - Jouy Story, Designer of Golden Cactus

A Bag for Every Occasion

I needed a tote bag with a simple and something soulful style that I could easily carry around. I needed something both large and small enough to communite with to work, and I also need it when traveling. The key here is a pocket for a laptop or iPad.

First Drawing

I don’t think it’s that difficult to express the subject of the memo symbolically. The real difficulty comes when trying to create a natural storyline with those symbols as a whole.

Thoughts

The pandemic continues to bring great trials to all of us, but the trials will end and an era of greater prosperity and development is coming. Personally, I love the preciousness of traveling easily and being able to interact with many people and eat out comfortably. Traveling gives me an opportunity to be more grateful for things I may have otherwise overlooked. I wanted to express and share that hope and excitement in my designs and products.

Material & Lining Spec

What Is Made Out Of?

Using good materials for a product is as important as creating a good design. First, we tried to preserve the characteristics of raw materials without using synthetic materials as much as possible.

For the body, I chose a cotton fabric that can capture the color of Toile de Jouy well, and I added a water-repellent function to minimize wear with daily usage.

Front-Lining Structure

The biggest feature on the front panel is the open pocket. I think the open pocket size should be wide enough to fit useful items, such as a phone like an iPhone 11 with a case on it and a passport holder for ease of travel. The zip pocket is wide and deep enough for storing an array of items.

The lining is waterproof on the back, so even if liquid is spilled, it cannot completely penetrate into the inside of the bag.

Back-Lining Structure

The pocket in the back of the bag for you to safely store your laptop was an important practical function needed on the back panel. There is also a rubber band pocket that can be used for various purposes in front of it. It’s a perfect fit for a mouse, trackpad, power charger, and tumbler. There are also leather loops on both sides of the inside for a shoulder strap.
