Ginkou Kimono Purse 1975


Our stylish and functional purse, hand made from vintage kimono: use as a travel accessory, as it can accommodate passports and boarding passes, or as a colourful day time clutch clutch to hold your essentials.  The gingko purse features 6 divided internal sections, plus one zipped section, and credit card slots to keep everything together.

This kimono fabric bears the classic repeating ‘seigaiha’ pattern, called ‘blue waves’, or fishscales. These are shaped like a 'matsu' the symbol of pine trees, which are regarded as strong and hardy plants. 

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

Handmade by self help groups in Cambodia.
