What does kinchaku mean?

Kinchaku (巾着, literally "attached to one's sash") is a traditional Japanese drawstring bag, used like a handbag (similar to the English reticule) for carrying around personal possessions; smaller ones are usually used to carry loose coinage (similar to a sagemono), cosmetics, lucky charms, hand warmers and other small items. Larger versions can be used to carry bento (packed lunchboxes) and utensils, as well as other larger possessions. Also referred to as "kimono bags" (which can come in Western-style handbag models, as well as the traditional drawstring), the larger kinds of kinchaku are usually rattan or palm woven flat bottoms, while the main body of the bag can be made with the same materials as a person's kimono and obi (and even from tenugui material), so as to co-ordinate them with a kimono, obi or other accessories such as a netsuke. Kinchaku are traditionally carried by maiko and geisha.
