Freitag opens store in Kyoto, complete with DIY workshop and industrial aesthetics. Following the opening of its two stores in Tokyo and one in Osaka, Freitag has now opened a fourth outlet in Kyoto, Japan.

The Zurich-based company, which transforms used truck tarps into new bags, has always felt a special bond with the country as it shares with it a passion for the used, wabisabi aesthetic. Located very close to the ancient Nishiki market and the metropolitan Nakagyo-ku pedestrian precinct, the second Freitag store in Japan is modelled entirely on the industrial-style logistics warehouses at the company’s headquarters in Zurich.
