Kuukou Folding Wristlet Clutch 4142B

$60.00 USD

| /

Our best selling clutch, hand made from vintage kimono: use as a stylish travel accessory, as it can accommodate a few passports, or a functional 'throw in and go' folding clutch to hold a few essentials on a night out. 

This poppy red silk kimono is covered in ‘hanabishi’: floral motifs within a diamond shape.

The flowers are Ume, the Plum Blossom, which 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.

The fabric is a silk, with 'tsuyushiba' patterns woven into the fabric giving with a textured finish. These crescent shaped motifs symbolise Dew Drops on Grass: it means freshness and so is most commonly found on summer kimono.  

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

Handmade by self help groups in Cambodia.

Dimensions: 24cm x 13cm
