Mah jongg carrying cases provide safe storage for the multiple types of parts that have utility in the game of mah jongg. Manufacturing companies build mah jongg tiles to endure over long periods of time, even several decades, as many tile sets are ivory or bakelite. Carrying cases tailored for mah jongg sets take particular care to store the tiles in one or more smaller protective cases that fit within the larger carrying case. To keep all of the parts from mixing within the case, cases feature multiple sleeves or enclosures that seal shut with Velcro strips or zippers. Mah jongg enthusiasts often preserve a single set in a carrying case instead of purchasing multiple sets.

Other items stored within a carrying case include wooden racks, dice and multi-colored counting chips in case a bettor is participating in the game. Many carrying cases store dice and bettor pieces in a drawstring mesh bag that tucks into one of the sleeves.
