The subway, vital to city living. But after around 40 years, most Osaka Metro subway cars are scrapped. Thanks to two creators, a new upcycling project is underway. Designer Takayama Katsumi and bag maker Shinoda Eiji reuse material from gangways between cars and ring straps to make shoulder bags. Not just eco-friendly, worn by an adult, the strap is at waist height, perfect for a child to hold on to. For any kid who wishes they could reach the straps on the train, these bags are a dream come true.
