Fukuro Obi Clutch - 3139E

MONIKO STORE

Our signature clutch, hand made from vintage 'obi': the sash worn with kimono at formal occasions.

This black obi is decorated with a dramatic design of ‘Houou’ embroidered in red, silver, and a variety of tones of gold.  This is the invincible, immortal mythological bird. This can easily be confused with the ‘Tsuru', crane, and is best identified by the distinct plumes on it’s head.

This vintage Fukuro Obi was sourced from the Osaka area of Japan.  It is approximately 40 years old, and in excellent condition.

Handmade by self help groups in Cambodia.

Dimensions: 31cm x 20cm
