Speaking of a bag with Sanadahimo handles, I made a bag last June. The body is made of Hakata-obi material and the bottom part is made of a material which I bought at a curtain shop. They had a pile of odd size curtain materials for 100 yen each. This one is a block-out drape. The handles are Sanadahimo. Sanadahimo alone were good enough, but I backed them up with the block-out drape material.
