I guess I am addicted to bags. This huge bag is from Japan. The silk farmers carried the cocoons to the co-op in them. I got it at the antique textile shop in Tokyo.
It’s made of paper. I loved the texture.
I noticed some patches that were made.
I think the paper is made of a variety of fibers because of the variety of shades of white.
The back had this seal on it.
This is India, but I used to have a photo of a Japanese man lugging a bag like mine full of cocoons over his shoulder. But this gives a sense of the size and the number of small cocoons it must hold.
