Obi Clutch - Lime Green Hanamon


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

Wonderfully striking, the dramatic heavily embroidered ‘hanamon’ bursts forth from the lime green silk, while karakusa grasses swirl in the background.  This obi is a wonderful example of Nishijin weave, a technique developed in a part of Kyoto over 1000 years ago. 

This vintage Fukuro Obi was sourced from the Osaka area of Japan.  It is approximately 30 to 40 years old, and in excellent condition.

Handmade by self help groups in Cambodia.

Dimensions: 30.5cm x 18cm
