Sewing: Kinkachu

The kinkachu is a type of Japanese omiyage or gift bag.  We currently have five in stock. They’re $60 + shipping. Many would be suitable bags for DOGD-style Coelbren letters, or Viking runes, for sortilege. They’re all 100% cotton fabric, and the interior of each bag is about the size of a closed human fist.

You can also ask us to make you one in a desired color palette.
