Kuukou Folding Wristlet Clutch 2655

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. 

Colourful ‘seigaiha’, ‘tsuyushiba’ and ‘kasumi’ patterns sit within the 'sensu' fan shapes: all symbols of nature: waves, dew drops on grass, and clouds respectively. The gold ‘nami’ waves fold gently into each other, in the background. surrounded by ‘nadeshiko’ and ’kiku’ flowers. 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 30 years old.

Handmade by self help groups in Cambodia.
