Mister Donuts Snoopy Fuka Fuka Bag- can only be exchanged for 150 points on Mister Donuts card
I went home intrigued by this kind of bags. I decided to google them. And this is what I discovered: they are really called Puffer bag. And contrary to what I thought they do not only exist in Japan. As it turns out, many serious brands have been making puffer bags for a while now: Marc Jacobs, Chanel to name a few.
But why is it that I am only noticing these bags now? Well, maybe because they are becoming trendy in Japan. All affordable international and Japanese brands do have a version of these tote bags in stores now.
I am not sure these bags are for me. I do not really like anything that is pouffy like down jackets. Yet, as I touched them, I realise that they are so kimochi ii, or great to the touch. They are really soft, and just for that they are becoming more and more appealing.
The one I fancy is a three colored one from the Gap. It is big enough to hold everything that I like to carry and more. Furthermore, the three color design makes it look like a striped bag. And if you are familiar with me, you should now that I absolutely love stripes. To top it all, the colors are bright and happy. What more could you ask? Well for the price to be a bit lower. These babies retail for 3999Y.
And I could not find any single picture of that jewel online. What a pity.
Rootote Feather Roo tote bag available at Sony Plaza for 3990Y
the bag can also double as a hand warmer if you open the zippers on the side
Update: In January, I check my local Gap for the bag I liked but it was gone. Was this bag just a maboroshi (vision) of mine?
