【看CP學英文】每到夏日,大口吃西瓜消暑絕對是一大享受,但每當想到要把體積大又重的西瓜從市場提回來就令人望之卻步,日本有間知名皮件品牌為大家想到解決辦法,讓你輕鬆提西瓜還能很時尚!知名職人手工品牌「土屋鞄製造所」推出活動「The Fun of Carrying」,首波主打產品竟是由義大利頂級皮革製成的「西瓜提袋」。

Eating watermelon is a must to beat the summer heat, even though lifting a large, heavy watermelon in a plastic bag from the market can sometimes be a daunting task.

The good news is that there is a new lifesaver for all watermelon enthusiasts! 

Tsuchiya Kaban, a Japanese handbag maker, recently launched an Italian high-quality leather tote bag carrying a watermelon as part of the campaign named “The Fun of Carrying.”

從土屋鞄製造所製作的影片中可以看到師傅細心地將一塊皮革剪裁、量尺寸、縫製,全手工打造出一顆有如籃球般的皮革提袋。最後放入一顆西瓜,扣上釦子固定,就可以輕鬆攜帶西瓜了!

The official video shows the craftsman meticulously cutting, measuring and sewing the pieces of the bag together. All you need to do is to place in a watermelon, button up and wander in style to your next destination!

可惜的是,這顆皮革西瓜提袋並不會上市,時尚地提著這個袋子去採買西瓜的美夢恐怕破碎。這只西瓜提袋只會放在土屋鞄製造所位在東京澀谷、六本木的分店櫥窗內,有興趣的人只能路過看看過過乾癮了。

Unfortunately, the luxury watermelon bag won’t be available at the store near your in the near future. The leather maker will offer this high-end watermelon bag in his stores only, namely in Shibuya and Roppongi, Tokyo.
