Azuma Bukuro (Bag)
Azuma-bukuro (bag) is a simple bag completed by sewing one or two piece of cloth in a straight line. It is said that it originated in the Edo period (1603-1867) when common people who saw bags carried by Westerners imitated them by sewing together furoshiki and tenugui cloth (A cotton cloth used for carrying things and as a towel.).
Azuma” means “east,” and this means “Edo as seen from Kyoto”.
We made these bags with simple beauty that somehow reminds us of a kimono from the scraps of futon fabric.
One side is unbleached and undyed cotton, the other side is colored and patterned cotton.
This bag has a large capacity, perfect for shopping at the grocery store or going to the gym. It would make a very nice gift.

I’ve always wanted an authentic Japanese futon, so I ordered a new Japanese bed- shikibuton topper with cover, kakebuton, tatami mats, and pillows- and the items have beyond exceeded my expectations! The quality is unbeatable, and customer service was top notch. I couldn’t believe how quickly everything arrived. I would HIGHLY recommend this seller. They put a lot of care into each item that they sell. I’m sure at some point I will be ordering again! Thank you very much!!! A+++!!! ❤️
I have ordered a futon and a tatami and I was able to get this Japanese *bag*. It's absolutely gorgeous, the fabric being used is stunning and the pattern and colours are amazing. I absolutely love it.
