Fukuro Obi Clutch 2767B

MONIKO STORE

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

A beautiful ‘kiku’ unfurls it’s colourful petals across this obi. Kiku, the Chrysanthemum is the Flower of the Imperial House and and often used icon of Japan itself (it features on Japanese passports). It represents rejuvenation and longevity.

This obi is heavily embroidered with shades of warm red: some of the weaving can be easily snagged with jewellery so need to be handled quite gently! 

This vintage Fukuro Obi was sourced from the Osaka area of Japan.  It is approximately 30 -40 years old, and in excellent condition.

Handmade by self help groups in Cambodia.

Dimensions: 30.5cm x 19.5cm
