Kuukou Folding Wristlet Clutch 2899I

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. 

The pattern covering this purse is called 'Asanoha', or 'Hemp Leaf’ is one of the most popular traditional patterns, the regular geometric pattern, though abstract, represents overlapping hemp leaves. As a geometric motif it is not associated with a particular season so it can be worn throughout the year.  It is also connected to growth and children's health, since hemp is durable and grows quickly.

The design also features 'kasumi' clouds that represent elegance and high status.

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.
