Kuukou Folding Wristlet Clutch 2769S

MONIKO STORE

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.

The base blue silk fabric is woven with 'kiku' chrysanthemum and 'momiji' maple leaf patterns which gives the fabric additional texture.

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.
