Note: Packages for most tea & food products will use Yunomi resealable bags or tins (with some exceptions, click here to see info and photos). If you need the original Japanese package, please leave a note in the order comments.
These straps were created by Hina-san with material and instruction from Kimono store Sakabun in Ishinomaki, Miyagi Prefecture. Material used came from undamaged portions of kimono fabric ruined in the tsunami. The student-led Saki-Pon project arranged for the fabric to be turned into these straps providing work for survivors currently living in temporary housing facilities.
Approximately $5.00 is paid to Hina-san who made these straps, $3.20 to Sakabun for the material, $1.00 to the project management, and the remainder for PayPal transaction fees and Yunomi.us packaging expenses.
