I’ve been itching to go to the land of the rising sun which is why anything Japanese catches my attention. Just last week Rootote, a bag that is known in Japan for the innovation of a simple tote into a stylish and functional one has recently opened its first ever store here in the Philippines.
Rootote offers a unique line-up of 2-way backpacks and tote bags that are fit for both men and women, Japanese influence is evident in every piece with fashion-froward style and design functions that are very practical in any situation.
The name Rootote comes from the animal kangaroo, since it has inner pocket, so do all Rootote bags inside wit patented “roo pocket”.
Form and functionality. All bags are designed to be the perfect stylish companion for travel, sports, casual, and other outdoor activities. Rootote bags have numerous pockets inside and outside. Another feature is it being water-repellent–literally good of any weather.
Rootote bags price range is from Php 2,295 to Php 3,300.
Artist Joly Poa and Bea Araneta hand painted some of the guests Rootote bags during the grand launch.
The early birds get to have their picture taken one too many times! Hahaha. All smiles being literally surrounded by Rootote bags with Rowena Lei of Animetric.net and Marj Sia of The Traveling Heels.

But at the end of the day, I picked a bag that even my kids can use. This cute Rootote backpack can be used by either my daughter or my son, me or my husband!
Rootote store is located at the 3rd level of The Block, SM North EDSA.
