A Kinchaku (巾着, lit. "carrying cloth") is a traditional Japanese drawstring bag, coin purse or pouch, worn like a purse or handbag (similar to the English reticule), used for carrying around personal possessions; smaller ones are usually used to carry loose coinage (similar to a sagemono), cosmetics, lucky charms, hand warmer, etc.; larger ones are usually used to carry around bento boxes (packed lunchboxes) and utensils, etc.
Also referred to as Kimono Bags (which can come in Western-style handbag models, as well as the traditional drawstring), kinchaku are usually rattan or palm woven flat bottoms, while the main body of the bag can be made with the same materials as the kimono, the obi (and even from tenugui material), so as to co-ordinate them with a kimono, obi or other accessories such as a netsuke.
