This simple, traditional style shinai bag is made of cotton with a reinforced base made of synthetic leather. It comes in two sizes, one for a single shinai and another accomodating two. The top of the bag folds over the shinai to make a secondary pocket where you can store the tsuba and tsubadome.
The bag itself is decorated with the distinctive shobu - iris - pattern up and down its length. The iris has been associatied with strength and vitality since the Sengoku Jidai and has been enduringly popular amongst bushi and budoka ever since.
