Maido x BAGGU and More!


Do you know Baggu? It is an eco-friendly bag brand born in 2007 in California. Originally created by CEO Emily Sugihara and her mother Joan for their own use, Baggu is now very popular in the US and abroad, including Japan. It is made of nylon based on the shape of the grocery store bags that everyone has used. Funny enough, the word Baggu came from the Japanese pronunciation of the word bag, so it is a perfect item for us to carry at Maido!


Baggu is not only fashionable in shape and design, but also functional. In pursuit of the best material, they use the same material used for tents and outdoor wear, and it can hold 2-3 times the capacity of a typical grocery store plastic bag. The bottom is wide enough to hold an egg carton or drinks without any problems. The handles are just the right length to hold in your hand or over your shoulder.


It can be used not only for grocery shopping, but also when you hang out with friends, go to the gym, travel, or just want to carry a second bag. It can hold approximately 50 lbs/22 kg of stuff, yet weighs only about 3 oz./80 g. It is not only light but also very thin, so you can carry it in your main bag or even in your pocket.


As a result of their pursuit of a commitment to sustainable products, from the spring/summer of 2022, they started using 100% recycled nylon fabric, which is very environmentally friendly.


Baggu's bags have been very popular at Maido, and especially popular patterns always sell out immediately whenever they arrive. So, we finally decided to launch a Baggu with Maido's logo on it.


Since plastic bags are now banned in Ardmore, you all need a light and compact bag that you can use over and over again and carry with you, right? Why don't you get this special item the next time you come in to the store and try carrying it everywhere you go? You will surely get a lot of compliments on this Baggu!


This Maido logo was designed by one of our employees/a Japanese calligraphy artist, Mie Kawabata. Her art is on display/offered at Maido (many of them are at the small hallway by the backdoor), so please do not forget to check them out when you come in.


We also sell Maido Baggu online. Click here to check it out.

Many of you must have seen this bag at the store before, but this is the type of reusable bag that Maido has been selling for a long time now. This bag is also sturdy, and the cute and colorful Japanese design is sure to catch people's attention. On the side of the bag has the Maido logo.


In fact, we are planning to sell a new design of this type of bag in the future. The timing of the new design has not yet been decided (Nothing is confirmed yet. It could be a long time from now.), but there will be a time when this bag we are selling now will be retired. So, get this design while it is available.


This bag has a solid shape, so it is ideal for storing items that easily fall over, or for stacking folded clothes, and more!

These, except the ones on the bottom right, are not our exclusive items, but we have more reusable bags at the store! Especially, Shiba Inu character Shibata-san's tote bags are very popular, and stock is limited, so some kinds of bags might be sold out by the time we send out this newsletter.


We offer some types of bags online as well! The Cinnamoroll one is Baggu, and it sold out immediately at the store. You can order for yourself for pickup, or for your loved one within the U.S.A. for delivery.
