Fukuro Obi Clutch 3010B

MONIKO STORE

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

A delightful display of bold red, gold and silver ‘ume’ blossoms adorn this black obi.  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 Fukuro Obi was sourced from the Osaka area of Japan.  It is approximately 30 to 40 years old, and in excellent condition.

Handmade by self help groups in Cambodia.

Dimensions: 30cm x 19cm
