A triple pocket purse in the shape of your favourite Japanese snack.
Each purse has three independent, zipped pockets. On two sides, shallow pockets allow for quick and easy access to coins, and on the bottom, there’s a central, bigger pocket to store larger items. These hold’em-alls are great for everyday and especially for traveling, letting you organise and separate multiple currencies with ease. Here’s a few things we like to keep in ours ; different coin types, national / foreign currency, medicine, earbuds, suitcase keys, emergency chewing gum, jewellery, usb stick, SD card, ticket stubs, sweets, loose buttons, knick knacks, bits & bobs and (most importantly)… lucky charms!
There’s a metal ring on one side so you can attach to your person, bag, keys, jeans etc…
The position of the nori and the ring subtly remind you which pocket is which.
Usually translated to “rice ball”, an onigiri is a white-rice based staple Japanese snack typically made in a triangular shape with “nori” (seaweed) wrapped around it making it easier to hold. Our design specifies materials to complement those of the humble snack :
Main : white 600 denier “rice texture” polyester
Black patch : black “seaweed” Tyvek™*
Inner pockets : “salmon” orange nylon
Zips : white “YKK vislon” type
D Ring : nickel plated iron
D Ring anchor : white polyester
* Tyvek™ is a flashspun material made from high-density polyethylene fibers, developed and trademarked by Dupont (USA). It looks like paper (and nori!), but is durable, difficult to tear and (liquid) waterproof.
