During World War II, the Japanese public gathered comfort materials, such as cigarettes, sewing kids, medicine, packets, tooth powder, and other hygiene and comfort items to donate to Japanese sailors and soldiers. These were sent from Japan to military units for distribution in various cotton drawstring bags, such as this one. They were called imon-bukuro.

Some had bright motifs, including flags, peace, doves, aircraft, tanks, ships, etc. Most were fairly simple in their design like this one.

The final picture shows the cover of a Japanese patriotic magazine depicting a traditional Japanese woman and kimono filling one of the donated comfort bags with goodies. Feel free to copy the photo for reference.

As you can see, this one is named to a Japanese service member on the bottom left.
