Hashi Kimono Make up Pouch 4341N

$55.00 USD

| /

Hashi is Japanese for ‘bridge’. This design was inspired by the shape of a beautiful red bridge at a temple in Osaka.  It features one large pocket accessed by a top zipper, and a zipped pocket on the side. Designed with a base panel, so the pouch will stand up.

This is kimono is decorated with Kiku, Kiri and Ume.  Kiku, the chrysanthemum, is the flower of the Imperial House and and often used icon of Japan itself (it features on Japanese passports).  Kiri, the Paulownia plant, often also called the Princess Tree. It was traditional to plant a tree when a baby girl was born, and to make a dresser from the tree for her wedding gift. 

Ume, the Plum Blossom is a very popular symbol on fabrics. It is a favourite within the range of Japanese designs: 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, with a pattern of Nami, waves, woven into the fabric giving it a textured finish.

Handmade by self help groups in Cambodia.
