  1. Thank you for posting this amazing handspun bag! Do you know the meaning of desings and insignias? My ability to embroider is more hodgepodge, this looks so carefully done (does the back of embroidry show or the lining covers it?

  2. The Kanji are for the name Morata and the design on the opposite side of the bag is probably a family crest or business crest. The lining covers the back of the embroidery so its hard to tell if its neat or if its more haphazard.
