Our casual, swing clutch, with adjustable leather strap and leather tassel. One side is black leather, and other is vintage 'obi': the sash worn with kimono at formal occasions.
The design on the obi features pairing of Kiku and Botan.
Kiku, the chrysanthemum, is the flower of the Imperial House and and often used icon of Japan itself (it features on Japanese passports). It represents rejuvenation and longevity.
Botan, the peony, is known as the king of flowers in Japan.
This vintage Fukuro Obi was sourced from the Osaka area of Japan. It is approximately 30 years old, and in excellent condition.
Handmade by a self help group in Bali.
