Kuukou Folding Wristlet Clutch 2877R


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 classic pattern of ‘bishi’ diamond shaped.  As in in the Mitsu'bishi' logo.  'Ryuusu' swirl across the design: water, is usually depicted as Nami, waves, or Seigaiha (repeated wave pattern) but wandering streams are often found on the fabric designs.

The base silk fabric is woven with a 'kikkuo' pattern, of repeating hexagons.  This is a symbol of longevity as it resembles the tortoise shell, and tortoise were once believed to live for one thousand years.

This vintage kimono was sourced from the Osaka area of Japan.  It is approximately 20-30 years old.
