Comment One of our textile "pickers" found these exceptional sakaburo at an old sake brewery. Fabulous example of the effort in which the Japanese sake brewers took to extend the life of each precious sake bag. Labor was obviously less expensive than purchasing a new bag. These sakaburo have been repaired many times.
