Fukuro Obi Clutch 2762A


Our signature clutch, hand made from vintage 'obi': the sash worn with kimono at formal occasions.

A classic pattern of 'matsu’ and ‘kiku’.  The Kiku, chrysanthemum, is the Flower of the Imperial House and and often used icon of Japan itself and represents rejuvenation and longevity. The symbols of longevity are reinforced by the ‘matsu’, the pine, a hardy plant that symbolises strength and long life.  These sit on a background os 'sensu' the fan used for traditional performances.

Woven with two tones of bright orange, metallic pastel blue, gold and silver threads.

This vintage Fukuro Obi was sourced from the Osaka area of Japan.  It is approximately 20 to 30 years old, and in excellent condition.

Handmade by self help groups in Cambodia.
