Fukuro Obi Clutch 3495D


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

Bright orange, red, lime green, and gold Momiji fall across the black obi fabric, and over the gold temple.  Momiji, maple leaves, symbolise autumn, and the Japanese traditionally admire and revere the Momiji leaves just as they celebrate blossom in the spring.  Momijigari is a celebration of the beauty of autumn leaves which was started by aristocracy during the Heian era 794 to 1185AD. 

The temple could be the golden temple Kinkakuji, in Kyoto.

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

Handmade by self help groups in Cambodia.

Dimensions: 30.5cm x 21.5cm
