Summit Bag Production and Distribution, Contents and Details
May 17, 2023
Following the custom of G7 Summit meetings, Japan produces and distributes Summit Bags as souvenirs for visiting dignitaries from G7 delegations as well as to the press.
The Summit Bag made of Bingo denim fabric from Fukuyama City, Hiroshima Prefecture, is woven and sewn by master craftspeople in the Summit host region of Hiroshima. Bingo is the name of a pre-Meiji administrative region that covered the eastern part of today’s Hiroshima Prefecture, including Fukuyama.
Contents of the bag were selected to convey the appeals of Hiroshima and other parts of Japan, and includes environment-friendly goods using as little plastic as possible, and stationeries that can be used by the delegations and the press during the Summit.
