Ginkou Kimono Purse 2899L

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.

The pattern covering this purse is called 'Asanoha', or 'Hemp Leaf’ is one of the most popular traditional patterns, the regular geometric pattern, though abstract, represents overlapping hemp leaves. As a geometric motif it is not associated with a particular season so it can be worn throughout the year.  It is also connected to growth and children's health, since hemp is durable and grows quickly.

The design also features 'kasumi' clouds that represent elegance and high status.

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

Handmade by self help groups in Cambodia.
