Kuukuo Folding Wristlet Clutch - 3526E


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. 

Popular Japanese design motifs adorn this fabric, including 'sakura ' blossom and 'kiku' flowers. Kiku, the chrysanthemum, is the flower of the Imperial House and and often used icon of Japan itself (it features on Japanese passports).  It represents rejuvenation and longevity. 

Sakura, the Cherry Blossom, is one of the first of the year to bloom, and blooms for a relatively long time. It holds a special place in hearts of the Japanese: signifying new
beginnings. These blossoms also represent the purity of life and patriotism.  As the Sakura design is so loved, it is used on kimono worn throughout the year, not just springtime.

The fabric is a Rinzu silk, the base fabric is woven with a pattern of flowers, which gives the fabric extra lustre. 

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