Kuukou Folding Wristlet Clutch 2590

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 delicate collection of coral coloured Momiji and white Kiku spread across the cream silk. Kiku, the chrysanthemum, is the flower of the Imperial House and and often used icon of Japan itself.
Colourful maple l aves are celebrated each autumn at a special festival of Momijigari. 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 to 30 years old.

Handmade by self help groups in Cambodia.
