"Sakabukuro" are collectables popular among vintage textile fans in Japan.

Before the sake making became automated, those hand-loomed, "kakishibu" (fermented persimmon) dyed canvas bags had been used to filter "moromi" (rice mash) and extract clear sake. "Sakabukuro" had been useful for a long time, possibly for decades with occasional patches, repairs and now each of them has its own unique character and beauty.
