Hidari Wristlet Pouch 3878D

$50.00 USD

| /

Our handy pouch, to keep a few essentials together, stylishly.

Can be paired with the smaller Migi Wristlet Pouch as a set.

A collection of popular Japanese design motifs adorn this fabric, including 'ume' blossom, 'kiku' and ayame’ flowers.   Kiku, the chrysanthemum, is the flower of the Imperial House and and often used icon of Japan itself (it features on Japanese passports).  Ayame, iris, is widely admired in Japan. It is a sign of strength and the sword shaped leaves are symbols of warriors in the past.

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 pattern of square ‘dots’ represents shibori, the Japanese miniature tie-dye technique.

The pattern is printed on a rinzu silk, a damask silk woven with a pattern to give extra texture to the kimono fabric.  The design is further enhanced by gold printed areas.

This vintage kimono was sourced from Tokyo.  It is approximately 20-30 years old.

Handmade by self help groups in Cambodia.

Dimensions: 24cm x17cm.
