Ginkou Kimono Purse 2645

MONIKO STORE

Our stylish and functional purse, hand made from vintage kimono: use as a travel accessory, as it can accommodate passports and boarding passes, or as a colourful day time clutch clutch to hold your essentials.  The gingko purse features 6 divided internal sections, plus one zipped section, and credit card slots to keep everything together.

A graceful pattern of ‘shippou’, a never ending pattern of interlocking circles meaning gemstones or treasures, with traditional ‘seigaiha’ repeating waves, with ‘kiku’ chrysanthemums and ‘botan’ peony flowers, within ‘kasumi’ clouds. The fabric is chirimen silk: a silk woven to have a crepe-like texture.

This vintage kimono was sourced from the Osaka area of Japan.  It is approximately 20 to 30 years old.

Handmade by self help groups in Cambodia.

Dimensions: 23cm x 13cm x 3cm
