Design Tote Bag — That Was Zen 

Carry Your Zen Spirit!

US$ 19.99 (plus shipping charge)
To keep your mind at peace, you may need a Zen mindset. Designed with a karesansui stone garden motif, inspired by the wabi-sabi aesthetic and serene spiritual world, this tote bag from Kyoto, the center of Zen Buddhism in Japan, brings the spirit of Zen with you at all times.
Not to mention as a memento of your visit to Kyoto or for people who have had some kind of Zen experience anywhere, this is an ideal item for those of you who want to carry a sense of calmness with you.

Made of water-resistant canvas fabric that is thick enough to hold a laptop computer, this sling tote is ideal for daily use. Printing is done by the direct inkjet method, in which the ink is well-soaked into the fabric, resulting in a more natural finish compared with the popular thermal transfer method.
