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 silk kimono is decorated with a pattern of Kiku and Sensu.
Kiku, the chrysanthemum, is the flower of the Imperial House and and often used icon of Japan itself (it features on Japanese passports). Sensu are the fans used in traditional dance performances, and are a symbol of prosperity as they grow in size when opened up.
This vintage kimono was sourced from the Osaka area of Japan. It is approximately 40 years old.
Handmade by self help groups in Cambodia.
Dimensions: 28cm wide x 20cm high closed, 35cm high when open.
