Snowball Kasuri, Stripe, and Check Komebukuro
A charming rice bag, or komebukuro. These bags were traditionally created to bring rice offerings to temple or to hold small meaningful gifts.
This particular komebukuro is created from several pieces of indigo kasuri, stripe, and check cottons and is entirely hand stitched. Of interest is the two different types of yukinko kasuri, where both warp and the weft threads are resist-dyed and then carefully woven to create a repeating snowball pattern.
The owners name is written along the top. It is in excellent condition without damage.
