Description
 
"Persimmon" Tote Bags

This listing is for two tote bags dyed with the same persimmon juice (tannin) used to covers traditional Japanese stencils (katagami). Persimmon tannin helps strengthen the fiber and makes the stencil somewhat water resistant. (These bags are not water resistant, however.)

The cotton bags were made in Bangladesh but dyed in Kyoto. The dyework is stylized, resulting in a scrunched, slightly shibori-like uneven - but interesting! - patterning.
