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 collection of popular 'ume' blossom, decorates this fabric. Ume, the Plum Blossom is a very popular symbol on fabrics.  It is a favourite within the range of Japanese designs: it’s beauty and fragrance has been reflected in many poems.  It is the first of the year to bloom, and therefore represents endurance. It became a symbol of good fortune, as is used for New Year decorations. The ‘Sensu’ motif is often found with Ume: these are the fans used in traditional dance performances.

The base navy silk fabric is woven with a pattern of ‘ryuusu’ a wandering stream, lending a extra 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.

Dimensions: 24cm x 13cm
