Komebukuro patchwork boro pouch featuring Kokka faux shibori indigo and white cotton

Sorry, this item has sold.

This listing is for the pouch pictured. This is the actual pouch available for purchase.

A komebukuro or "rice bag" is a traditional pouch used to carry rice or beans to temples or shrines. Komebukuro are usually created out of scraps of cotton or hemp fabric and often feature sashiko. These bags can be used to hold gifts or small items.

This bag was created to showcase the Kokka, cotton canvas fabrics that I have available for purchase. These 100% cotton fabrics are created in Japan and have white "faux" shibori designs over a deep, indigo blue colored background.

These fabrics are a light to medium weight canvas fabric and have a slightly open weave and woven texture.

100% cotton sashiko thread was used to create 3 areas of sashiko stitching in yellow and orange colors.

The bag closes via a 3/8 inch (.375 cm) wide, black colored polypropylene twill tape.

The interior of the bag is lined with a solid, deep indigo (nearly black), Japanese import, quilting cotton.

A black, lightweight interfacing was used to add some structure to the bag so that it sits upright when placed on a table.

The bag measures about:
6 inches wide x 6 inches deep x 7 inches tall
(15.25 cm wide x 15.25 cm deep x 17.75 cm tall)

Hand wash in cool water and line dry
