The bag was designed as a single laser cut sheet of leather died with plant derived tannin that can be distributed completely flat. Without any tools customers can fold and assemble it into a three dimensional bag, just by joining a few rivets through the holes of the bag. This simplified the manufacturing process and minimized inventory and shipping cost, allowing a rich collection of various colours, sizes and shapes. Because of its form, this bag can be counted as one sheet, two sheets, or, in Japanese, ichi-mai, ni-mai, and so, the bag was named “mai”.
