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 use has been recycled from old kimonos, furoshiki or futon covers. The word literally means Rice (kome), Bag (bukuro.)The bag measures 10" tall (not including loops) and has a 7" x 7" square bottom. It is lined with Yukata fabric and has a 5" inside pocket.
