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 harmonious blend of emblems: a multitude of ‘sensu’ fans containing ‘kiri’, ‘kikkuo’ and ‘kiku’ with ‘ume’ blossoms and ‘momiji’, maple leaves. Other motifs include ‘matsu’, the pine, a hardy plant that symbolises strength and long life, ‘ryuusu’ wandering stream, repeating ‘seigaiha’ pattern, called ‘blue waves’. 

The pattern is printed on a rinzu silk kimono: a kind of damask silk which has motifs woven into it’s surface, for extra lustre and texture.

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

Handmade by self help groups in Cambodia.
