Kuukou Folding Wristlet Clutch 2078


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. 

A gentle pattern of the ever popular 'ume' blossom, covers this genuine kimono fabric. The Plum Blossom is a very popular symbol on fabrics.  It is a favourite within the range of Japanese designs: it’s beauty and fragrance has been reflected in many poems.  It is the first of the year to bloom, and therefore represents endurance. It became a symbol of good fortune, as is used for New Year decorations.

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.
