Kome-bukuro (rice bag) is a Japanese drawstring Bag used to carry offerings of rice to temples or shrines. They are made of fragments which are often hand spun cotton and vegetable dyed. Comprised of stripes, checks and Katazome, the cotton and silk cloth I have used has been recycled from old kimonos, furoshiki or futon covers. The word literally means Rice (kome), Bag (bukuro.)
Each bag measures 10" tall (not including loops" and has a 7" x 7" bottom.
They are lined with cotton Yukata fabric and have a 5" pocket inside.
