Archival is thrilled to be working with Barley Harvest Season, the distributor of our bags and apparel in Japan. One of the original motivations for the Archival blog was my wish to document the US heritage products sold in Japan - but not available stateside. Now, I take great pleasure in redistributing images of our own products making guest appearances on Japanese blogs and web sites. Lacking translating language skills, I focus on store display methodology and the bag-on-model shots so expertly deployed by Japanese web shops. Here are some recent snaps from the blog/shop King, Inc.
