Kuukou Folding Wristlet Clutch 2818Z

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 bold pattern of Guruma wheels, a popular kimono pattern since the Heian era 794 to1185 AD. The Genji Guruma, is an Heian oxcart that was linked with the wheel of Karma in the Buddhist Tale of Genji. Mizu-guruma is a similar motif, but is a waterwheel.

Gold painted details highlight the pattern, adding an extra dimension. 

The pattern is also 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.
