Kuukou Folding Wristlet Clutch 2568

MONIKO STORE

Our best selling clutch, hand made from vintage kimono: use as a stylish travel accessory, as it can accommodate a few passports, or a functional 'throw in and go' folding clutch to hold a few essentials on a night out. 

A bright collection of popular Japanese design motifs adorn this navy blue fabric, including 'kiku', 'tsubaki' and 'kikyo' flowers.   Kiku, the chrysanthemum, is the flower of the Imperial House and and often used icon of Japan itself (it features on Japanese passports).  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 30 years old.

Handmade by self help groups in Cambodia.
