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 kimono is scattered with ‘Tsubaki’ . The camellia flower, was historically part of the Japanese wedding tea ceremony, symbolising life and promise. It is also known to be a hardy plant as it flowers in November and December.
The pattern is printed on a really soft to the touch rinzu silk, a damask silk woven with a pattern of ‘Bishi’, diamond shapes, to give extra texture to the kimono fabric.
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
