I’ve always had a weakness for confectionery – edible and otherwise – so you can imagine how irresistible this San-X Rilakkuma zippered case must have been to me. :P Unlike the more kiddy-like Rilakkuma vinyl pouch, this one is both feminine and cute at the same time. The images of cakes, macaroons and other sweet delights remind me of those on Palette’s Sweet Street merchandise. I ♥ the cheerful colours!
The interior is printed with related images. The gold on pink makes for a more expensive appearance; it would be a pity to stain the fabric with makeup.
I particularly like the folded sides of the case. I actually caved because of this – the folds add a wonderful touch of interest to the pouch!
I also saw a flat vinyl version at Kinokuniya. Although it’s too small for me, I really like how well-made it is and how it beautifully displays the creamy macaroons.
Here are two more pouches with this adorable design. Aren’t they lovely?
