Sumo Oiri Drawstring Pouch

Sumo tournament design fabric bag

In traditional Japanese show business circles, it's customary to give bonuses in red envelopes with the characters reading "oiri," which means something like "great attendance," in big white letters. This custom is so well known in Japan that the image of a red rectangle with the white characters on it has become a talisman for wealth and fortune. Sumo also shares this tradition (because, after all, it does have a show business side) and when a tournament is running, the image can be seen on envelopes used for bonuses and all around the stadium. And now in memorabilia like the Sumo Oiri Drawstring Pouch!

Made of polyester fabric with an acrylic cord, the Sumo Oiri Drawstring Pouch is 19 x 25 cm (7.5 x 9.8"), which is large enough to contain all your essentials (phone, mobile battery, wallet, etc.). Like the bonus envelopes in sumo tournaments, it is bright red, and printed with the characters for "oiri" in white and "Thank you for a full house," "Final day of the tournament," and "Nihon Sumo Kyokai" (Japan Sumo Association) in black. A true must-have for all sumo fans and any connoisseur of classic Japanese fashion, since drawstring pouches are one of the main accessories for a kimono!
