£9.00 per item

Pochibukuro are small envelopes used to gift money in Japan. Etiquette requires that money be put into an envelope when given as a tip or a gift, including when given to children as part of the New Year celebrations. Decorations adorning these pochibukuro are therefore often symbolic in meaning and serve as well wishes for the receiver.
In Japanese folklore, rabbits are said to live on the moon, which has a close relation to the tides and waves of the ocean. Therefore, rabbits have often been depicted in combination with waves as an auspicious symbol of fertility and vitality. The pattern on this pochibukuro is printed using silk screen printing on handmade inshu washi, Japanese paper.
