MONIKO STORE

Our stylish and functional purse, hand made from vintage kimono: use as a travel accessory, as it can accommodate passports and boarding passes, or as a colourful day time clutch clutch to hold your essentials.  The gingko purse features 6 divided internal sections, plus one zipped section, and credit card slots to keep everything together.

This silky smooth fabric is adorned with the classic repeating ‘seigaiha’ pattern, called ‘blue waves’, or fishscales. Inside each crest sits a ‘sensu’ folding fan, outlined in deep purple, mauve or lilac. The sensu is used in traditional dance performances. 

Ryuusu patterns are woven into the silk fabric, and creates added texture. These motifs symbolise water, and wandering streams in particular.

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.
