JAPAN
Sakabukuro
Prior to Japan's industrialization, cotton bags permeated with persimmon tannin (kaki shibu) were used in the production of sake.  Crude sake, or sake lees, filled this sakabukuro (sake bag/pocket), and under pressure, filtered sake was forced out.
Used countless times, these hand-sewn bags required mending, and the eccentric stitches and patching on this particular piece are evidence of its hard life. Sakabukuro, especially the heavily mended variety, are extremely collectible textiles in Japan and abroad.

ABOUT UROBORO

Is dedicated to Nunzio, my only and best brother I could have had. He was also a friend of mine, and of great help in my life, making me simple hard decisions.
What you find here is his personal collection. Unfortunately, my home is not large enough to contain all, so if you are interested in purchasing any article, please contact me. Some of these articles are already collected by some friends of mine and are no more available. These pieces are marked with a red asterisk.
