SOLD Thank you.

This lovely cotton-canvas sakabukuro (or sakebukuro) is dyed with persimmon juice (kaki-shibu) which creates a natural brown color due to the tanning in the juice. This type of bag is used in the traditional sake refinement, separating the sake "mash" into sake and the left over called sake-kasu. These bags are highly collectable in both Japan and overseas and the collectors generally find charm in the "rough" conditions of the textile and lovely patches and mending. Ca. Early to mid 1900s Dimensions: 8 1/4" wide 29" long
