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 classic pattern of ‘bishi’ diamond shaped.  As in in the Mitsu'bishi' logo.  'Ryuusu' swirl across the design: water, is usually depicted as Nami, waves, or Seigaiha (repeated wave pattern) but wandering streams are often found on the fabric designs.

The base silk fabric is woven with a 'kikkuo' pattern, of repeating hexagons.  This is a symbol of longevity as it resembles the tortoise shell, and tortoise were once believed to live for one thousand years.

This vintage kimono was sourced from Kyoto in Japan.  It is approximately 20-30 years old.
