Ginkou Kimono Purse 2905P


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 fish scales.  The repetitive pattern of waves was used on Chinese maps to depict the sea. It was made popular in Japan by the artist Seikai Kanshichi. ‘Nami’ waves fold gently into the pattern. 

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

Handmade by self help groups in Cambodia.
