Our stylish and functional purse, hand made from vintage kimono: use as a travel accessory, as it can accommodate passports and boarding passes, or as a colourful day time clutch clutch to hold your essentials.  The gingko purse features 6 divided internal sections, plus one zipped section, and credit card slots to keep everything together.

This silky smooth fabric is adorned with the a classic ume motif.  Plum blossom is one of the favourite symbols of the Japanese kimono design:  it’s beauty and fragrance has been reflected in many poems.   It is the first of the year to bloom, and therefore represents endurance.   It became a symbol of good fortune, as is used for New Year decorations.

The fabric is a silk woven with a pattern of 'kasumi’, clouds or mist, which represents high status. 

This vintage kimono was sourced from the Osaka area of Japan.  It is approximately 20-30 years old.
