Our best selling clutch, the kuukou in a larger size: use as a wristlet clutch, add a strap to make it a crossbody sling, or you can also use to hold an iPad.
Recrafted from a Fukuro Obi, the sash worn over the kimono at formal occasions.
This obi features a pair of ‘Tsuru’. The crane frequently appears on wedding kimono, and it represents hope, longevity and good fortune, because of its fabled life span of a thousand years. It also represents fidelity, as Japanese cranes are known to mate for life.
This Fukuro Obi was sourced from the Osaka area of Japan. It is approximately 30 -40 years old, and in excellent condition.
Handmade by self help groups in Cambodia.
Dimensions: 28cm wide x 20cm high closed, 35cm high when open.
