We ship internationally with a flat rate shipping fee (based on your country). Also, if you purchase a “Fukubukuro (Plus and Supreme)”, I will send a follow-up email with what to do with the items you receive.

Sashiko Fukubukuro (Lucky Bag)

The Japanese have a unique custom of celebrating the new year with enjoying “lucky-bag” so-called Fukubukuro (=福袋 | A bag filled with fortune). A Fukubukuro contains many merchandises to start the new year’s activity. According to the document, a draper in Edo period started selling their items in a bag on the first day of their business.

We offered this Fukubukuro in Japan over the year transition from 2018 and 2019. Many people enjoyed the idea of a blind bag, and more importantly, we receive many positive feedback with their satisfaction. We also receive some questions if we were planning to do so internationally. So, here is an offer of Sashiko Fukubukuro for international orders.

Please read the terms & Conditions carefully before placing the order.

Terms and Conditions | Sashiko Fukubukuro

  • The regular flat rate shipping fee will be applied based on the destination. You may add other threads or Sashiko items without applying the extra shipping fee (maximum weight total: 2,000 gram). If you prefer to expedite the package, please choose the “EMS” options at the checkout.
  • Because of its characteristics, we will not accept returns and/or exchange.
  • The Bags will be sold between January 4th (at 1 pm EST) to January 25th in 2019. The sales continue while the supply last, and it may be ended before the final date.
  • The shipping will be made accordingly to the order. However, unlike the other regular order which usually is shipped in 1 business day, this order may take longer than that. All of the order will be shipped before the end of January.

For the international orders, it is always a challenge to reduce the shipping fee for the customers. As of 2019, we applied the flat rate fee based on your location. The “flat rate” let you purchase anything with the same one-time flat rate shipping fee. With considering the year cerebrating Fukubukuro, please consider getting the other Sashiko threads & items that we sincerely recommend.

*For the international order from Japan, please be advised that the buyers are responsible to pay the additional costs such as duties, taxes, and customs clearance fees.
